Despite the wishes and advice from police and local service, the owners of A Place In Space in Croydon have got back into their premises. While fire did blaze down the street as a result of rioting, it stopped next door and A Place In Space has, very luckily emerged with full undamaged stock and the Blitz spirit desire to keep things going.
But obviously they need tour help. Footfall, as you may expect, is down right now. Here is a message to their customers and, basically, anyone in the area who may fancy a trip to sunny Croydon at the weekend.
After the rioting and fires in our area we have now regained access to our premises and will be working hard to get the shop open as soon as possible.
The police cannot advise definitively when this will be but we hope it will be by the weekend.
Additionally, we anticipate listing this weeks comics up on our Ebay Store, by Thursday.
Outstanding orders, new orders and emails will be processed as soon as we can, but we desperately need the extreme understanding and patience from our customers – these circumstances are unprecedented and we are doing everything we can to resume business and regain a sense of normality as soon as possible.
Our London Store is continuing to operate as normal.
PLEASE CONTINUE TO SUPPORT US – its a devastating time for us and our community and we still trying to come to terms with the recent death of both Steve's Parents, so please to all our customers ….
we need your support and continued business.
Steve, Alison, Chris, Daniel, Grant, Michael and Alex.

UPDATE: And Manchester Forbidden Planet seems to have done a lot better than first reported;
