Yesterday, more than 70 firefighters battled a huge blaze which tore through a building at Camden Lock Market in middle of the night.
Camden Guitars has two shops in Camden. One is the small shop that they started out with, in the heart of Camden Market, and the other is the big shop on Chalk Farm Road that Mendis Music is located under.
Unfortunately, Camden Guitars lost its small shop, as it was completely burned down. There was nothing to save.
I would personally like to thank the London Fire Brigade for tackling the fire as fast as they could and for consoling me when I arrived distressed and emotional, on the scene. You are incredibly people and I am grateful for your service.
I would like to thank each person that left a message, sent a text, wrote me a message, called or came to see us in person to show love and support. It has helped immensely in dealing with this big loss. Sadly, there were many other businesses and traders that have lost everything and my thoughts have been with all those people constantly.
I am adamant that something good must come out of this for us all.
Director / Founder of Mendis Music
