Hi ENDY Folk !!
My name is "Little Brown Man" (L.B.M) and I'd like to offer you a very warm welcome to "ENDYS" New-look Store.
I'm one of Mister E's famous side-kicks and have worked for 'the firm' for several years and have lots of fun, as do all of ENDYS Staff !!
Mr.E and the F.A.R.T TEAM recently spent 6 hard weeks developing our 'new look' Store, so here's a little overview of what we've done.........
We have brand new Signs and window lettering along with some really eye-catching Blackboards advertising some of our wares. Plus, just to confuse, Mister E. has a board advertising food !!
Really gives us a laugh when people come in to order steak and chips.........naughty !!
ENDY Madness !!
And sometimes we even offer a 'massage' service.........
MASSAGE services. Allegedly!
As you enter The Store you'll notice a bit of a 'Tardis' effect.
We have a good corner position on a busy crossroads. From the outside you'll see our Store with two windows and a door in the middle. Go through the door (opening it first, obviously !!) and you're in.........
On entering ENDYS you'll find a large selection of basic Packs and Haversacks..........
PACKS, Bags etc.
Just to your right we have our T-Shirt-selection-racks and a ton of Boots !!
BOOTS sample area
Moving further into The Store you'll see our Camping displays with Sleeping Bags and associated bits and pieces.
VARIOUS Sleeping Bags in stock
.........we've generally a good pick of Sleeping Bags available, both selected Commercial lines and Genuine Military 'Bags can be seen.
We give excellent advice on choosing.........
L.B.M in ENDY Sleep Mat !!
SELF-Serve Mess Tins, Cook Sets etc.........
Then you'll notice our striking display of the incredibly popular Shemaghs.
Our F.A.R.T TEAM knocked-up some 'made-to-measure' shelving and racking to keep our Surplus Clothing in. It's all displayed logically in Size / Grade / Quality order etc.
Assistance is always on hand though, just in case you get stuck !!
Our main Surplus areas were created using Stirling board 'stained' to give a really cool 'Camo effect'.
Let our experience guide you.........
INTO The Store
Combat Trousers have always been a big part of the ENDY-Business and we carry vast stocks of many styles. We buy from the U.K, Germany, Holland etc. Again, you'll find we're all logical with our systems.........smaller sizes on the left and bigger ones on the right !!
Occasionally, whilst perusing The Store, our In-Store Dog, Glasto, may make himself known. Don't panic (!!) as he's very well trained and will not lick or bite you under any circumstances. For one, Glasto is far too busy to bite anyone as his main job is to monitor the ENDY-C.C.T.V System; plus, he has his own kennel to relax in. For all the juicy gossip on Glasto take a peek HERE !!
ENDYS "CCTV" is watchin' !!
Moving even further in, you'll see our display rack for Bivi Bags, Ponchos, Shelter Sheets and Poncho Liners.
HUNG out.........Bivi Bags / Tarps and Ponchos etc. on display
We generally have a great selection of Bivi Bags and Poncho's etc. available with up to 10 types / styles of each normally on display.
CORNER of Store
Now for some Badges !!
In order to have all of our many BADGES (100's of 'em !!) displayed we have made a selection of swing-boards.
'IRON-on' from £1.50
You can peruse at leisure and just point out anything you'd like to buy.
PAULS 'Handy' work !!
All interior works are carried out by highly trained ENDY Staff. We never employ specialist shop display experts. Just look at Paul's "handy" work !!
IT takes two.........
- a mooch and a rummage (within reason !!) is generally OK with us.
ENDY "Dump" Box
We've several 'dump-boxes' with mixed Pouches and Webbing pieces in. You're welcome to rummage through these. You may just find a bargain !!
NOT @ ENDYS !!
VARIOUS designs. Great fun !!
We've recently added a great selection of wooden signs to our stocks with various Motifs and Military-oriented wording on.
AS it says.........
These make great displays or even a present for the one you love (or not :o) as the case may be !!
BADGE Display board
We've a massive selection of Badges available and now have most of them for easy-viewing on our new Swing-boards !!
PATCHES from a pound
.........and some Cam Netting.........one of our best sellers !!
We sell acres of CAM NETTING and generally have plenty of stock 'to go' In-Store.
NETTING "To-go" !!
And some Gas Masks.........
Here at ENDYS we carry a great selection of Gas Masks. Sold as "collectors items only" many are Un-Issued and are great for display purposes etc. You can see more of them in our COLLECTORS ITEMS section.
Paul has done us a really cool (and somewhat spooky !!) display of Gas Masks. They are located on the ceiling (where else !!) of our Store secured against a metal mesh frame.........maybe it stops them escaping.........
We have recently added a second Changing Room to The Store to cater for the busy periods, particularly on a Saturday. The new one is just great. You can sit in it, but you can't shower or shave though !!
Decked out in some SUPER-COVER Netting and with a great seat built by our very own Mister E !!
You could spend hours in there. Oh, my word, some customers DO !!
CHANGING Room. Fit for a King or Queen !!
And then there's the Bears.........
We have various random 'ENDY Bears' dotted around The Store. Tends to keep the Kidz entertained while the grown-ups shop.........or should that be the other way 'round !!
MARINE Bear. Loves ENDYS. Check.
Next time you're In-Store get your Kidz to see how many Bears / Animals they can find !!
1, 2, 3, 4, 5.........15, 16, 17.........23, 24, 25.........
YOU may even spot the odd "Action Man".........or two !!
And for something really different ? Do check out our unique range of ENDY EXTRAS
(Not for the faint-hearted !!)
KIDZ go crazy @ENDYS !!
(there's a squirrel)
In October 2010 we introduced a fantastic "Camo-for-Kidz" ("C-4-K") section. You'll find this located at the rear of the Store.
"C-4-K" THIS way !!
It contains some great lines including Jackets, Trousers, Tee-Shirts, Assault Vests and loads of other interesting kit including Helmets, Bags, Notebook Holders and Dog Tags etc. We can see this area of the business going from strength to strength. To see a selection of what we offer, check out our dedicated "C-4-K" section over HERE
Father Christmas won't be long.........
The Kidz section is all racked out in a logical fashion. All stock is arranged in size / age-group order with 'smallest to biggest' going left to right. With Jackets and Tee-Shirts on the top racks and Trousers on the bottom. Clever stuff !!
GREAT display !!
In The Store you'll notice some really eye-catching and interesting pieces on shelves and generally hanging around. That reminds me, where exactly DID I put that Missile.........
Inter-mingled within The Store you may find batches of Clearance Items or what we call "G" or 'Graded' stock. Not to the usual ENDY-Standard but always 'priced to clear'. There's bargains galore at ENDYS Store !!
GRADE 2 Mess Sets. German
Some more animals.........
Mr. Up-Meerkat is hanging around, just waiting for a customer to flog an Entrenching Tool to !!
And for some Hardware.........
We love our AMMO BOX selection and buy them by the pallet load.
We always check the Quality and Condition, even the "inside" is checked and cleaned if needed, not that we're fussy or anything like that !!
NOT @ ENDYS !!
Here at ENDYS we have a very diverse customer base. We regularly have customers from all over the world visiting us !! We cater for basic WORK WEAR to MILITARY and CADETS Plus, in recent times, the general explosion from the BUSHCRAFT trade. We're on 'first-names-basis' with many !! Neil, Dave, Mike, Dan, John, Martin all come to mind.........and some ENDY-Customers even have their own Web-Page !! Cue FENNA TIME !!!!!!!!!
We value all of your custom and have always offered a FAIR PRICING POLICY
Basically this means we take great care when we buy our Stock and pass any relevant 'discounts' on. These generally being pre-cluded into the pricing you'll see In-Store and on the Web-Site. We find this a far better approach than 'fooling you' with "big %-Discounts" which invariably come off a RRP (Recommended Retail Price) figure which, typically, is set 20% in the Shop-Keepers favour.
OK, off we go again.........
Introducing our "C-4-K" Manager, Mr. Dofey-Mo.........
Dofey-Mo here !! I've worked for Mr. E for quite some time now. It's great !!
I'd strongly advise that if any 'jobs' (not Big-Jobs !!) come up you need to work at ENDYS !! My main (sausage) role is manager of the Kidz Department but I do like to get involved in other stuff too !!
He doesn't sell red wellys though, but he does have some cool GREEN ONES !!
HEY, wake up !!
MISTER Up-MeerKat, you have to wake up. We need to go to work or Mister E. is going to be very cross.
We've a great range generally available including fantastic value, well-sourced, quality Commercially made Stock plus our Surplus wares.
Patrol Packs, Resi' Cases and Bergens etc. etc. are generally available.
CENTRE of our Store
A key part of our Business comes from serving Military personnel. We have a massive selection of all the 'bits and pieces' generally required.
- BUSH HATS to SPARE POUCHES and PARA CORD and extra WATER BOTTLES plus all the gear to help keep their Kit dry. All with prices at (typically) 10% to 25% below RRP.
P.P.P: Pick, Point and Pay system
Again, we pride ourselves on our Personal Shopper Service. ENDY staff are always ready to serve, probably like no other Store in the City. You could just say that we're "a little bit different" !!
Shop and Save (with Service) with ENDYS !!
Down through the middle of The Store you'll find quite a few boxes of Commercially-made COMBAT TROUSERS
We have many styles to choose from. With Olive and Black the most popular. Plus, we have many Camo Patterns including the very popular URBAN !!
Sizes across the styles can go anywhere from Kidz aged 3-4 all the way up to a massive 52" !!
Our ground floor is the main sales area but we have multiple Stock Rooms which are all crammed full with Kit. So if you don't see what you are looking for always ask a member of the ENDY-Team.
We don't honest !!
Likewise, with the Web-Site, we have around 700 - 1,000 more lines / items than you'll find on here (GULP !!)
OK, it's nearly the end of your ENDY-Tour and L.B.M is a little tired (ahhhhhhhhh) so lets get you on to the next section:
We have a great range of Water-Proof Clothing. From basic P.U-Coated, sweaty, non-breathing Kit through to great value Breathable / Waterproof (M.V.P's etc). We cater for most budgets so always ask for some advice if you are unsure on any purchase.
ENDYS Store. I love it. You can s?it anywhere !!
We are predominately a retail Store but we're more than happy to Mail-Order you some of our Kit.
"HELLO, Endys ? L.B.M here, have you got any little Trousers"
Simply ring The Store and speak to a member of staff who will guide you through. Subject to availability etc. items are generally dispatched the same day.
DUTCH Cap and No.2 Tie
We have a MASSIVE selection of Headwear and Hats and with over 200 types / styles to choose from we rarely say "no" to a customer !!
KIT galore !!
HEY guys, no need to lose your heads. It's only ENDYS !!
D'OH. We work flat-out for Mister E and look wot happens..........we're gonna' have a word with Health and Safety about this.........
OK, that's just about the end of your ENDY-Tour but if you have enjoyed (!) yourselves and would like to learn a bit more about us, do check out a great feature done by David Cornforth of EXETER MEMORIES
It's a super read and shows a little of our history and background going back more than 70 years and 3 generations !!
You can learn all about the 'flares' the 'fire' and 'the fone'.
Oh, yes, the PHONE !! (sorry Dad !! R.I.P xxxx)
For all the detail see HERE
Thank you for coming on this little ENDY-Adventure with me.

KEV: Allegedly !!

Over and out.
