July - A summary

Hi all,

July has been a busy, BUSY month. It all started with the School Prom Season, which was manic busy! And then the wedding season swung into action and now we are going hell-for leather to complete all of those wedding orders.

This is (by-fay!) the busiest year I have ever known! It is exciting but allot of hard work. We are now no-longer booking 'Brown Wedding Suits' until October and we are no longer booking any wedding suits for most weekends in August and a couple in September. We are now appointment only on Saturdays and we no longer offer an alteration service on suits which are not from Jack Bunneys.

I would like to thank everyone involved with the Barking and Dagenham Business Awards for our Special Recognition Award which we received this month. I was very proud and honoured to accept this award on behalf of all the Bunneys past and present. I can only apologise for the dodgy acceptance speech! I was not expecting to find myself in that position and as such was not prepared.

So I will thank everyone now. Thank you first of all to Mr Jack Bunney, who founded our shop in 1958. He retired in the early Eighties but our shop has worn his name with pride. Unfortunately Jack himself is no longer with us. Secondly I should thank Terry and Peter, these guys bought the shop from Jack when he retired and they are the guys responsible for our success. Terry retired 2 years ago. I should also thank every single customer we have! Who not only pay our wages but (most of which) are jolly nice chaps too!

July has been a great success. Lets see what happens in August ;)
