The UT shop is sadly no more. After 10 months upstairs at 1C Conduit Street it became apparent that we no longer needed the expense of a retail unit. Thus, as we were forced to move again, we instead relocated the business to a private office for our mail-order service & all other operations.
The location is about 2 miles south of the old UT shop, which is just a 25 minute walk or short bus/car/taxi ride.

Visitors are welcome. We still want to meet friends and customers! So, why not contact me about visiting. We are not a shop and do not have actual "opening times" but we are pretty flexible. We can probably cater for visits at any time you desire within reason. It's best to make an "appointment" if possible. That is you should email or phone me for further information and to check it's okay. Best not to chance a visit unannounced, as we may not be here! But, if you are passing by, then why not? Still, a phone call would be handy!

Coming to Leicester, want to buy something but can't get here? We can also meet up somewhere, as I go out shopping 2 or 3 times a week. Or, you can catch us at one of our gigs, or at Quadelectronic. Nothing is too much trouble really, well - within reason that is!
