Cutlery Firm Closes For First Time In 118 Year History As Boss Thanks Staff

Lichfield family firm Arthur Price has temporarily closed during the Covid 19 crisis. Having already closed its Lichfield factory shop last week due to worries over social distancing, CEO Simon Price has closed its Birmingham and Sheffield factories and Lichfield HQ.
“I’d like to thank every single member of the team for working with me during these difficult days, everyone has been brilliant; thoughtful and considerate of other staff, suppliers and customers and I thank them during this unprecedented worldwide crisis.”
“We stayed open even during two world wars, survived the great depression but this situation is different, and I pray for everyone that they stay fit and healthy.
“Please if you can support local independent businesses who are still able to open and are providing essential services while of course following social distancing advice.
“Everyone please stay at home. We may come back a slightly different society, but we will prevail. I am convinced with the measures that we take now we will beat this terrible virus.”
