Thames & Kosmos UK has said that the company is open for business as usual and finding the challenge of working from home easier than a walk in the park these days.

While the team has said that not being able to speak with customers as regularly has been difficult, Thames & Kosmos has seen strong sales in both science kits and board games, having recorded above forecast sales for both March (up 50 per cent) and April (to date).  

With news of the UK government extending lockdown until at least 7 May, the team understands that its bricks and mortar customers are anxious to keep their turnover ticking over and has said that it is keen to support them as much as possible.

Subsequently, Thames & Kosmos has decided to allow retailers to sell on third party websites with immediate effect. The company will allow these sellers after the Covid-19 crisis has passed.
