Whilst you wait

I have often wondered what became of the TV & Video repair clinic in Worcester Park (apart from the very obvious fact that it closed suddenly) and pondered in particular the fate of the many TVs that are gathering dust in this impomptu television museum.

I'm not sure whether the TVs sat forlon on their shelves were on sale at the shop or whether they belonged to customers and were in for repair - in which case, as the place has been abandoned for the best part of two years, they could be forgiven for feeling more than a little swindled by the 4-hour repair promise.

If any of the TVs do belong to you, then I'd be interested to know. In the meantime, it looks as though somebody has recovered at least one telly (quite probably not their own) with a little help from Mr Brick.

I have an old CAZBAR tv still in there as they could never get the part for it. Gave up in the end, so its probably in there somewhere!!

We took our TV there for repair some years ago, they repaired it and the service was very good, we've been wondering what happened to the shop for ages, if anyone knows do write in to enlighten us...

Don't take this as 100% fact but from what I have heard there was a disagreement between the owner and a member of staff. The member of staff was purchasing items that was required to repair the tvs personally. The owner kept putting off the expenses owed to said member of staff and finally refused to pay for the parts. The member of staff ending up having to take the owner to court to recover his costs. It was all too much for the owner and he had to pay all the expenses and costs of procedings.

I walk past the shop on a near daily basis and Im certain that I saw a guy in there back in Feb wearing a white coat. Don't know if it was the person responsible for kicking in the door or who it was but definitly someone in there.
