Anyone purchase anything from Sierra recently?

I'm thinking of buying a board and a couple other items but I'm worried with all the talk about Sierra being backrupt. So, anyone buy anything from Sierra recently and have recieved it without any issues?

Until I aee the shop up and running I would be highly skeptical of sierra. The lack of online presence is very un sierra like, I dont care how big the shop move is you try to explain to me how a shop that is so big online would drop the net with no warning for such a long period of time when they even have their own i phone web page, dont any of the staff have an i phone they can get onto the web with?

How about a shameless plug for another company?

I don't understand what your trying to say. If you saying a company of this size shouldn't have dropouts for their website I don't see how that is relevant to their financial situation, more of a QoS issue of whoever is hosting their website.

Anyway, Sierra is moving massive amounts of merchandise, they have a minimal store-front and a massive online presence. I would love to see what evidence people have for the claim that Sierra is going under, that isn't a challenge either, I am genuinely interested.

I believe the OP's question relates to the recent closure of the store.

Perhaps because your purchase wasn't recent. They haven't had Sierrascopes in stock for a very long time.

Can't tell if you're being sarcastic, but the brick and mortar store closed over a week ago. The online store is still operating though. There's some speculation that SS is in financial troubles, but at this point it's still only speculation.
