TENTSMITHS CLOSES DOORS

Folks it looks like Tentsmiths is going out of business..., no new orders after March 31, and they will fill the orders they have in April, and then shutdown.

The family that owns it is retiring. I'd love to own it, seriously, but they are in New Hampshire, and I can't relocate up there, and I'd not want to dump their sewing staff or ask them to move down to WVA...

Encourage the employees to buy out the company and to continue producing. The mkt is already established.

UPDATE...Tentsmiths is being sold to new owners and is staying in New Hampshire. Probably will conclude the full deal in about two months.

Good news
