Update March 23:
Red Dot Cameras has ceased trading for the duration of the crisis. The on-line store is now close. Ivor Cooper says: Continuing to run the on-line store would mean putting our staff at risk.
Our regular Leica store, Red Dot Cameras in the City of London, is moving completely to a web-based service from Monday, March 23. The store, at 86 Goswell Road, EC1V 7DB, will be closed until further notice because of the emergency.
Red Dot is gearing up its mail-order business and has announced that all on-line UK orders of £100 or more (excluding shipping element) will be sent without charge. The postage credit will be refunded online. Shipping for international orders will continue as normal.
Stock levels of new and used Leica equipment are good and the current weakness in the UK currency means that overseas buyers will undoubtedly find some bargains among the vast collection of pre-owned Leica gear.
