I was slightly disappointed to recieve the following response from Ashby today declining the request for access on the specific date suggested.
The warehouse has now moved to a 7 day a week operation and the warehouse has now been fully racked out.
Looking at this in a possitive way, as disappointing as this maybe I am actually pleased for the company. They have made a significant investment in the warehouse so deserve a good return and to make a profit. Whilst they own the warehouse and are making a profit it also protects the warehouse from being flattened and a new building built in place like many other older buildings up and down the country.
I will work on gaining access for some other time that suits there business needs and then see if I can gain access to Coalville independently.
So for now it's a no go
. Although I will work on an alternative and update if and when successful.
Unfortunately, I am unable to accommodate the site visit on the date that you are proposing. The warehouse operation is now running seven days a week since we have taken on new business. The warehouse has now been fully racked out and is full which is brilliant for us, but not great news for you.
If anything changes nearer the time I will contact you and let you know. You can then make a decision whether to visit or not.
