King's Reptiles - more bad news

Further to my previous post re. King's Reptiles in Camden High Street, London

I learned today that Simon, who I think was the actual owner of the business, died a few days ago. This has accelerated the timetable for closing the shop, and their last day of trading will be Tuesday next week. They're selling off tanks, vivariums, and accessories, prices seem to be about 2/3rds normal, I'd be surprised if they have much in the way of food next week.

This is very bad news for herpers across London but there's apparently a possibility that someone with experience in this field may buy the business and re-open at a later date; it's far from a done deal, and I wouldn't recommend counting on it. In any case the shop will be closed for the foreseeable future. I'm in the area at least once a week, and will post again if there are any developments.
