A couple of retailers have rung to ask what’s going on with Hot Shot Beverages, supplier of the ‘Shake and Stir’ tea and coffee machines. They had been promised sale or return on unused product and weren’t getting any joy from the company. I enquired at head office and Robert Joubert, head of sales, has told me that there has been a buyout of the company and that there will shortly be a relaunch with enhanced product. All customers should be taken care of. If you have any service issues with the company you can call 0800 031 9075.
