Leading Edge Concepts is a limited company and began trading in 1996 & of course is renowned for its award wining Radar/Laser detectors of which we supply direct to the consumer, automotive dealerships and large high street retailers such as Tandy & Carphone Warehouse. With our buying power we can afford to offer you, the consumer, the same product available on the high street, but at a substantial saving, with all the necessary warranties and a far superior after sales service.
Why pay high street prices when you can pay low prices. We will usually stock up to 10 pieces of any one model in our warehouse, allowing a customer's order to be turned around in minutes and delivered on the next working day of placing the order. We sell huge quantities of plasma and LED TV's, so we can buy them cheap and sell them cheap.
Leading Edge Concepts retail site is adjacent Retail World, Team Valley, Gateshead, a few minutes drive from both Gateshead and Newcastle upon Tyne, with free car parking spaces to allow you to peruse without worry.
Customers are free to call & collect product and drop by for a coffee and enjoy a demonstration of Home Theatre in our reference room, one of a handful in the North East of England. We are available from 9am to 6pm weekdays, 9am to 6pm Saturday and 10am to 4pm Sundays - check our location, contact details and opening hours.
