This is just a suggestion.

I purchased a couple of items a few years back from the gear shop.

A while later I tried to sign up to be informed when out of stock items came in, but never received e-mail notification.

It was only a few months ago when I became a member and started posting in the forums that I was notified by members that the gear shop is out of business and that it has been for some time now.

I understand and appreciate that the items and their specs are still listed (very helpful).

But, the items can be found using search engines, and when found, appear to the common Joe (non member) to only be out of stock. I myself have waited for gear to come in stock while forgoing purchasing items elsewhere for up to a year.

I'm sure that this problem affects other perspective buyers as well.

My suggestion would be that you add a blanket statement to all product pages to inform the people that come across them that the gear shop is no longer in business.

Thanks, Dave
