First Light Optics is moving!

Recommended Posts

This month First Light Optics will move out of my home office into a business unit :D

First Light Optics was born from SGL four years ago and has been built and run around SGL's member's requirements and preferences. What other dealers spend on magazine advertising FLO spends on forum sponsorship. No other UK astro' retailer operates this way :)

We like our approach to retail and fortunately many of you do too. Thanks to your support, advice and referrals FLO has grown steadily in size and capability.


I confess there have been times when our growth has been difficult to manage. In particular, during busy periods we have found it difficult to stay on top of the stream of emails, PMs and phone calls. Sorry :D

Operating from a modern unit with a proper phone system (three phones, not one!) shiny new computers and considerably more space for stock we will be more efficient and better able to deal with communications. This move will underpin what we have achieved and enable further growth.

FLO's sponsorship of SGL is unchanged and will continue to increase as required :)

We will make another announcement later this month with our new address and phone number.

Meanwhile, this is where we are heading (pix taken during a scouting mission with James and Nette).

Nice one Steve!

Congratulations on the move. It should be a fun (albeit scary at times) time ahead or you!

Wish I lived a bit closer (Exeter I think Kev)

Congrats Steve & James, the right move at the right time. Nice to see that you'll be able to stock more items & have a show room later. I'll have to pop down for a cupper sometime... If thats no problem.. :D:evil6::D

But make sure you check that lease....get a few break points in it....Make sure you get the repairing obligations that are consistent with the rental levels....


From my experience of clients!
