Has anyone seen that? My mom got an email newsletter from them saying that due to unfortunate financial circumstances, they were ceasing operations immediately. All current and future orders will not be filled. What a disappointment, and it's a shock too. I wonder what is going on.

I saw that, too. It is very sad to lose such great resource. greensad.gif

It's probably the same as so many other businesses right now: less people buying product with the same or greater amount of overhead costs make it impossible to stay in business. The rising oil prices don't help.

The guy who used to deliver for them told me a few weeks ago that they were in process of shutting down. I was surprised last week when I could still order, but I see that their website has been shut down now. greensad.gif

I seriously almost cried when I read that newsletter.  It sounds like they maybe grew too fast. Here are a couple links
