I am sorry to hear that, but wish you all the best for your future adventures (business and not). Speaking of adventures...any plans to jump across this side of the pond for a visit?

Re: Back-Art is closing

It's been absolutely bonkers at our Zurich showroom over the last few days; people have been coming from across the country to bag bargains galore and the feedback from everyone has been amazing; thank you so much for all your positive words and support

Our web business has been so busy our site had severe delays and timeouts on Monday - thousands of people ordering left our team open mouthed and rushed off their ergonomic office chairs - but capacity has been increased and things are more stable, so a big thank you too to all our online customers and apologies for any delays in getting your order in.

50% off everything until our closing day at the end of November - hurry! hurry!

Re: Back-Art is closing

Really sorry to hear this. I only made it up to your shop once on opening day, and I'm only a sporadic baker, but I always thought you guys were great

Re: Back-Art is closing



Dear Friends,

The Zurich showroom will be closed from Wednesday 18th November due to the selling out of the majority of the goods.

Tuesday 17th will be our final showroom day.

All further purchases at the 50% liquidation prices may be made from our main business back-art.ch - hurry while stocks last!

We are grateful for the crazy stories, adventures and fun times with our customers and hope we made a difference.

Thank you.

Re: Back-Art is closing



Hello again,

A quick note to let you know we're experiencing longer than anticipated delays in getting your orders to you. We generally manage hundreds of orders a day but at the moment with our closing down sale we have thousands - and orders are twice as large due to the price savings.

There are not enough hours in the day to get everything out at our usual lick and our warehouse team are shifting forklifts of pallets to keep up with the demand.

The backlog is being whittled down but please be patient; all orders will be delivered as soon as possible.

Many thanks for your kind words and good wishes.

Ps, the online business closes this Saturday: there are still bargains to be had but be quick... and patient
