Just received an email from HobbyKing saying the UK warehouse is now closed.

Hope you all managed to get stocked up last week. I should think by the weekend online shopping will be minimal as most of the shops will be closed. Apart from the international ones.

Fortunately (being a Yorkshire modeller) I have enough materials and kits in stock to last me at least 5 years (not so sure about loo rolls though. Maybe 6 month's worth).

The EU warehouse in Holland is still open, postage costs from there to UK can be cheaper than from Ipswich!

Panic buying is frowned on these days. Have a happy confinement building it, and I hope it won't be long before we are flying again

Ordered balsa plus bits from Balsa cabin on Monday. They said it might take a while as they were so busy.Also ordered bits from Nexus which arrived today. The shop may be shut but online business is thriving

I also had the email yesterday saying the UK HK warehouse was closed - then today I got an email suggesting I buy a Tundra model, and when you open the page it says it is available from the UK warehouse.

So is it shut or not? Not bothered personally as I don't need anything at the moment

If you look at the bottom of the page for the Tundra you will see a note that says your order will be held until they come back to work. So in answer to your question, the UK warehouse is closed.
