In the title of this thread you have put Harlow and Stevenage. The Depot Directory gives this 0845 number for Stevenage but none for Harlow. In your posting you said it's for Harlow.

So which is it and why have you mentioned both? Huh

We have a number for Smiths News Croydon depot and that's it. Some others have be requested but we haven't worked them out. I note that Smiths News uses 0845 numbers for all contact, including the head office, 0845 123 0000. A proper number for head office might be 01793 563999. Feedback on this number will be appreciated.

I noticed you asked for the number for a Menzies News Distribution depot to which that underlying number has been found. So have you switched providers?

I've come across a number for Stevenage depot on Smiths News' website which now no longer exists, but Googled cached on 6 October:

http://74.125.77.132/search?q=cache:qIucUUA3XcMJ:www.smithsnews.co.uk/smithsnews...

Telephone number is 01438 365395.

The depot address for Harlow is given as:

Units 1 & 2,
Scmitar Park,
Roydon Road,
Harlow,
CM19 5GU


I think that this report in the Harlow Herald of 3 August 2009 might be useful:

Smiths News steps in as Dawson News goes into administration
15:09 - 03 August 2009

SMITHS News, the UK's leading wholesaler of newspapers and magazines, has taken emergency action to safeguard the supply of newspapers and magazines in Harlow.

Dawson News previously distributed much of the area's newspapers and magazines. Unfortunately, Dawson News went into administration today (Monday). With such a sudden development, newsagents across the area could have stopped getting daily newspapers as well as weekly and monthly magazines.

[]


The fact that this depot is a new one in Smiths' network might explain why the website doesn't list a contact telephone number yet. No doubt that they will be ordering new 0845 numbers for what were Dawson's depots.

Dawson's website is still up at the moment and lists a number for Harlow: www.dawsonnews.co.uk

Sure enough, a search of BT Phonebook for
dawson
in
cm19
returns three results:
