I am sorry to have to announce that, due to all the impact of Brexit & Covid I have had to temporarily pause the distribution of JOYO products to our UK retailers.
From today JOYO Products will remain active for sale online only via the JOYO UK website and direct via JOYO on Amazon where many JOYO products are already available for free next day prime delivery.
We do hope to return to offer music retailers the opportunity to stock products again in the near future.
It is a really hard decision for me to make, as I have always believed that the products we bring to the UK are worthy to be in music shops in the UK and beyond. Since 2014 I have been able to offer nearly all JOYO products to retailers in the UK music industry. Our products have all been received well, by those who I believe in the UK know best.
I have had the great pleasure to deal with many music retailers up and down the UK, whilst trade side of the business has always offered the lowest return, the flipside was that I got the greatest pleasure from this side of the business.
Regretfully the impact of the last 18 months on the UK business, Covid and Brexit, has resulted in losing a big chunk of export trade to Europe, combined with a retail lockdown, increased shipping costs and difficulty obtaining stock. It has had a hard impact of cash flow on the trade business. The trade we had in Europe had until now helped fund the lower trade costs in the UK.
It has been a very hard decision for me to make, feeling like a failure just doing my best. It is an issue shared with many business owners in the country at the moment. Change & carry on. Not caused through any fault of our own, but an ongoing attempt to never give up trying to do what you love.
Hopefully UK music retailers will understand, nothing is permanent, I/JOYO UK have not gone away.
Stay groovy & cool, it’s not goodbye, hopefully I will see you later.
