You'd think they'd have backup generators. Especially if 1 hour power outage results in 10% loss of production for future months that's crazy!

But then they wouldn't have an excuse to hike prices so why would they do that.

No, it's click bait.
At any rate, it's all the excuses OCUK need to increase prices with 'justification'

its just no thought it is.. unless it knocked out samsung and hynix too?

and i don't think OcUK can increase prices anymore, everything is cheaper everywhere else. and all other shops are on top of the postage situation.
i waited 4 day for instock items shipping. the other big retailers are doing next day on orders before 12pm

Not unknown for the backup generators to fail. Or run out of fuel.

Not when your talking about this kind of money though. I've worked with generators before, they're routine checks to make sure they don't run out of fuel. If it's going down long enough then they have plans in place for re-fuel. Obviously you can't predict a failure, but they should be tested often.

1 hour power loss at greggs means pasty prices increase throughout 2021

My office is next door to Gregg's head office and manufacturing plant, it's hard to tell if you're having a stroke or their line is on fire, all you smell ALL DAY LONG is burnt toast :/

way over blown story. complete BS. 1hr outage means nothng to their yearly production.

articles like that just drive panic and cause confusion so someone can profit from it thats all they are there for. it will do you well to get your chrome to stop suggestions from these sort of news outlets.
