Sincere apologies for taking so long to reply. Thank you for your response.
My question is - shouldn't the community have received a warning about the shop's imminent closure? To my mind my books were private property left inside the closed store, in the way of a mislaid diamond bracelet or a watch perhaps. Would the owners of those such items have been traced and the property returned? My books were in the shop for my benefit, to help me sell them, with an agreed payment to the shop owner for use of the premises. I cannot see why, because these were books, rather than craft items for instance, they should be treated any differently
Hi DanielI did press the Good Service button but it might not have transferred toyou yet. Thank you for your advice, it wasn't what I wanted to hear ofcourse but it was what I expected. We have a very unfair system. If you canfind another moment to consider just one more point - shouldn't there havebeen a good warning sent out to the general public about the pendingclosure of the shop? Any angle I can use there?Appreciate your time. Thanks, Patricia
