Fire at Nintendo of UK customer repair company’s warehouse
Last week a serious fire ripped through a Repair Tech warehouse, Nintendo’s repair partner in the UK. The fire was said to hold up multiple fire personal and trucks all night while they battled the blaze.
“We can confirm that on Tuesday 18th November, a fire broke out in the warehouse owned by RepairTech, the company that Nintendo UK uses to fulfil its customer repairs,” a Nintendo UK spokesperson told MCV.
“Nintendo UK only used the warehouse for UK based product repairs and storing of associated repairs equipment, it did not contain stock that would at any point be sent to a retailer for sale to the public. We are pleased to confirm that no one was hurt.”
Nintendo of UK has reached out to affected customers whose software or hardware was at the site to offer free replacements or eshop credit.
