    Called in at Riversway Leisure Preston To-day, Closed up, a Fitter in the workshop informed us it closed for a stocktake 4 days ago and not opened since, there was a van parked across the door, so any body going there or ordering on line had better check first. Pete :thumb::thumb:

    I had been trying to access their webpage for a few days received the following message ;

    Not Found

    The requested URL /acatalog/info_900022.html was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    Ordered the item elsewhere ... luckily :thumb:

    That URL is for a specific page which might have been temporary (result of a search) or since deleted. Depends when Google indexed the site.

    Their accounts are showing as Overdue with companies house and there are quite a few address changes etc for company purposes since mid August.

    Shame. Bought a few things over the years from them and always a good experience. Looks like there are cash flow problems, but they do not seem to officially be in Liquidation yet.

    I realise that. :Smile:
    It was in response to a posting that said they had googled Riversway and couldn't get on the site.
    Basically I was trying it to see if you could and then reporting in :thumb:

    An update on Riversway Leisure.

    I popped down to Marquis in Preston and the Riversway shop is now closed, the company are continuing to deal online only. Marquis have taken over the old premises to expand their workshop and they will be offering a small accessories outlet.

    Placed an order with this firm last week via website. Had to telephone several times as no sign of delivery - some items eventually arrived - still waiting for a refund on item not in stock - would be a lot easier if the website said out of stock! Instead of clearing monies first.
