Business continues at nearby Swanwick Chandlery
Force 4 Chandlery’s store in Deacons Boat Yard, Bridge Road, Bursledon remains temporarily closed following an electrical fire.
No one was hurt during the blaze, which started in the early hours of Monday 13 June, causing significant damage to the building.
‘We are relieved that the fire occurred when no one was in the store,’ said owner Peter McLuskie, ‘however, there was extensive damage to the building and contents.
‘Our well-known and experienced Deacons’ team, including Manager Pip Johnstone, and team members Sarah, Scott, Andy and Steve, while affected by the fire, have been able to move temporarily, to work alongside staff in our existing Swanwick Chandlery, which was refurbished earlier in the year.
‘Swanwick Chandlery is only two minutes walk across the bridge from Deacons Boat Yard. They are looking forward to welcoming their customers at this alternative location until they are able to return to a safely refurbished store in Deacons Yard.’
Director Lawrence Parr said that a date for re-opening the fire-damaged store had not yet been set.
