The store opened on Saturday at 12pm BST and promptly crashed due to the sheer volume of instant traffic. The server collapsed and took the payment system with it. Took a while to get it all working again and we had to contact some customers directly to replace their orders. We are really sorry for any inconvenience caused. There were always going to be a few teething problems and we are still working hard to try and iron these out. Thanks to everyone who patiently persevered on Saturday. We will get there!
