Finding stock during a pandemic
Black Friday and Christmas this year are very different to other years due to many knock on effects from the pandemic.
Back in March 2020 Yamaha’s component suppliers in China closed for 3 months, which meant production on most models of Yamaha keyboards and pianos halted. Added to this, lockdown brought boredom to many families, and pianos and keyboards started “selling like hot cakes”.
We were fortunate to sell over 400 pianos, keyboards & organs in that 3 month period, and it was in fact even tricky to keep up with demand, leaving us having to panic-buy all the instruments we could get hold of.
Stock availability hasn’t really improved since then- and the only models in better supply now are the keyboards and portable digital pianos. But ePianos “stuck its neck out” and put in large forward orders to Yamaha back in June in the hope that it had plenty of stock for the bust November and December period and whilst the pandemic continued.
We are now thankful to be in a strong position, with over 450 new and used pianos, organs and keyboards in stock and more stock due in the next couple of weeks, so we’re really pleased to be able to welcome you to our black friday event with a large choice of instruments and finishes, all in stock and ready to ship overnight from our ePianos warehouse in Banbury, Oxfordshire.
We’ve made endless videos to help you select the right model that will suit your needs the best, and we’re at the end of the phone to give individual advice, or ready to answer your emails or even chat to you on our “live chat “ facility which you’ll find on the bottom right hand side of our web pages.
We have plenty of Yamaha P125, P45, P121, YDP series, SX900 and Genos models in our warehouse, and even some Clavinovas.
So checkout our Black Friday page, we have great stock available at the moment. And whilst more is on order – but be aware there’s a new holdup, which is the UK ports who can’t keep up with the amount of cargo ships trying to bring in extra stock – so snap it up quick as it’s much more scarce this year and we predict it’s going to run out sometime between now and Christmas.
