Henry Powell

Postby banditboy67 » Fri Aug 16, 2019 11:08 am

Hi all,
Been in contact via text with Henry regards a top award screen for my newly purchased Rivera and all of a sudden he’s not replying when I’m about to purchase it and a few chrome bits..
Has anyone else bought from him?

I spoke with Henry this afternoon. He recently had an accident, and whilst on the road to recovery and working, he's behind on some of his workload and trying to catch up. So, hopefully you'll hear from him sooner than later, but I guess things have to take their place in the queue. Personally, I've know Henry many years and I don't think you have any cause from concern (other than your order might take a little while to sort). Hope that's of help.

Hi coin-op.
Thanks’ for the reply..
If you chat in the near future could you mention that the guy called John who’s been texting him about the Riviera bits n bobs is a member on here.

Thx in advance....

I wanted some parts for my Aristocrat Deci King which he had and gave me a price between 100 and 200 about 6 months ago. Never got back to me so haven't been able to finish it, so it's just sat in the corner waiting for the parts I need but I have bought off him before. It's just annoying when people don't get in touch when they want to sell stuff. Still waiting. 🤣

That’s why I’m worried because I need the bits for my OXO Riviera.
I text him after getting word from off here that he’s the guy and he replied straight away. He even sent pictures via iPhone of what I need but had nothing since??

Like mentioned before, if anyone is a friend of his on here please pass on that I’m on here too and wanting to purchase. !THUMBS!

I have always found Henry Powell to be honest and reliable. In business you can't always follow up every enquiry from every customer. Anyway if you're not so far away you can always take the initiative, get in the car and drive up the A1 and visit.

Admin Response

A request has been made to remove this thread.
However I see nothing in it that is detrimental to anyone, in fact it could help others experiencing any similar delays.

A summary of this thread is: -
We're all sorry to hear Henry Powell has suffered an accident that impinges temporarily on his business.
It's good to hear he's on the road to recovery.
Like most of us in these circumstances Henry has had to refocus his priorities due to the situation.
This has all come to the fore due to his customers naturally questioning their orders.
Everybody now knows the situation.
A lesson perhaps for anyone in business that a contingency plan should be in place from the beginning that automatically kicks in in case it all stops.
Communication is the key.

This thread communicates.

I would love to go to Henry’s place and see the treasures and his arcade, very jealous of the fairground panels he has of all the manufacturers. I think he works on his own, but maybe wrong. Last time I saw him was at Derby 2018, one the true gents who will chat the world of slots with you.

Hopefully he will be back to his best and see him at a future event !!THUMBSX2!!

I’ve had some very nice replies and he’s going to send me the bits and bobs tomorrow all being well...
Can’t wait to complete my OXO.
