Saturday 31st October Auction Postponed
Nottingham City Council has announced that all auction houses must close from 30th October as part of Tier 3 restrictions.
We were shocked to learn of this news as we were not consulted prior to the announcement and first learned of the policy decision through the council’s website. No other tier 3 area has imposed restrictions on auction houses.
Since the end of the last lockdown it has been our priority that all visitors to our auction rooms remain safe. We have introduced Sunday collections, a greatly extended view day and number of other safety innovations. Many of our customers have been kind enough to praise our measures.
So far, we have been unable to find a council official to provide clarity on the decision to close city auction houses. Consequently we have no choice other than to postpone our Friday viewing day and Saturday sales.
We will, of course, inform you of developments as soon as they occur.
Meanwhile, we thank all of our customers for their support.
