The following email has been received today from The London bus Museum:

"The museum launched its new shop website on 16th October. For the first time, anyone will be able to purchase products on-line, any time, for direct delivery or collection from the museum.

Visitors to the site can choose from a wide and expanding range of products including bus models, clothing, DVDs, our new 2014 calendar and a new collection of exclusive mugs. The number of products available will expand as the team gathers experience about the level of demand from this important new facility.

The team, headed by Retail Director Richard Jones, will be working on the development of the product range into new and exciting areas, and members will be advised through special e-bulletins and the magazine as these ranges come through.

This eagerly awaited development in the Museumís retail activities has the potential to significantly increase sales. All profits from this will go directly to the running of the Museum, the restoration and preservation of its vehicles and artefacts.

The Shop now offers a 10% on-line discount to members on all purchases above £20 across the whole range of products.

So, start shopping with us now! www.lbmshop.com"
