Mesh and Evesham are virtually unheard of over here, and the only reason we knew of Time and Tiny was that Tesco and the likes stocked them. I never heard of Evesham and Mesh until I started buying PCA mag and logging onto this forum! We have a choice of Dell, PC World and local supplier, mplex over here.
The bigger companies in the UK charge a fortune to deliver over to here and as a result we turn to the local shops, mplex. (where I buy my equipment from) has grown from one small shop to, I think, 8 or 9 stores in a few years. Not bad for one guy that started the business.
I agree that with tiny/time gone in can only benefit the other competitors in the market, but of course the consumer gets less choice!
