Time to go... in to the dark night

Postby Nick Harllow » Sat Feb 06, 2016 8:02 pm

It is with geat personal regret and sadeness I must announce that 16/32 Systems (my retro hobby) will be closing down over the next few months (not sure exactly how long because I have quite a bit of stock to sell off, so if your interested in anything make me offer you might be suprised). I have been involved in the Atari scene since the 90's when I sold my Spectrum with Opus Disk Drive at the Royal Victoria Halls in Westminster to buy my first ST. I have never regreted that decision, all the people I have met, all the deals I have done and the Shows and events I have been involved with are all part of my history.

Thank you.

It is just with my real life job recently going into another direction and more responsibilities I just don't have the time to commit as I want too.

I will still be involved, but as a player as I do have ST, Falcon and Jaguar of my own and am not planning to sell these.

Sad news Nick. Some of your kit made it to Australia, and you'll be pleased to know it is still in use.

Bit of a late reply just to say thanks for your contributions Nick. Your 16/32 shop is part of my memories of the Atari scene. I think I might have bought a memory upgrade from your at an Atari show in Birmingham in the mid 90's if you were in attendance. Best of luck with your new responsibilities at work. :-)
