One year ago the bulk of the work on the website was finished and VS Music Supplies began to pick up new customers all over the world. So I thought that it might be good to see where our customers come from.
Starting with the UK, this map shows the approximate distribution of customers, colour coded to show the relative number in each area:
Red = highest number, reflects VS's Rochdale/Oldham origins
Orange = next highest - the Greater London area
Green = middling numbers, mostly heavily populated areas
Turquoise = smaller number of customers, often in rural areas and widely spread
It is approximate, based on postcode areas, so if you don't see a circle directly round where you live, I apologise but I haven't forgotten you!
This map does not show other areas in the seas around the British mainland, but there is a large number of customers in Northern Ireland, then a good sprinkling in Jersey, Guernsey and Eire.
Further afield, the largest number of overseas customers is in the United States, followed closely by Singapore.
The remaining overseas customers (in alphabetical order) are in Australia, Canada, Cyprus, Denmark, France, Germany, Malta, Hong Kong, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, and Sweden.
So thank you to all of you for buying your musical supplies from VS over the last year and I look forward to seeing you again soon.
UPDATE: as of 10th March, I am adding Orkney to my list - hope to see more islands near Scotland soon!
UPDATE: added Isle of Skye on 21st April
