i need to cancel it as two other tennants in the complex have been making it untenable to stay by spreading lies about our business and us causing customers to stay away and problems with suppliers that we share.
Our takings have dropped so badly its like the door has been locked.
One even comes down to our shop ranting and raving saying i shouldnt use his suppliers( trade suppliers ) this when people standing out side our shop causing shoppers to walk away.
They have also spread the lies around other business owners in the area which in turn has had a negative effect on our business because no one will refer customers to us.
We only moved in in february and opened on the 23rd it was all going great for first few weeks until they started, I now thing we have made a mistake moving into the complex and our business will fail if we carry on there. In my view the only way is to move out and terminate the lease due to our business being untenable in that location and moving else where
i have approached the local bobby on the beat and he said to keep a diary everything which i am now doing.
I have also approached the lease holder representative to explain what has been going on and im waiting for a reply.
I still have concerns that my business is on a path to fail now with the lies that they have spread, when muck is spread muck sticks !! and for a new business its destroying us so 10 year lease or not.. i can see us either terminating it now or failing to fullfill the lease.
ok will keep chasing but with 10years and a small village / town customer base i think im loosing out either way :-(
were a toys n gagets shop they sell toys for younger kids when were to the older market the other shop is a model shop and we sell radio controlled stuff and share the suppliers, to be hinnest its very childish the way they are acting ...
