Jon and his crew are good hard working people. The economy has taken its toll on many companies. Until just recently, the company I worked for closed up shop after 115+ years of operation. The company survived the Great Depression and World Wars but failed to keep its door open during the current economy. I am sure Jon is doing everything he can to hold it all together.

It is in our best interest that they pull through as they are a key competitor for Amain. We need competition to keep prices low and service high. I am already not happy with Amain's service, God help us if they get anymore of the market share. I for one will stay patient and continue to check Carolinas' site before going elsewhere.

Hope it works out for our interest as well as theirs.

I fully agree.... Amain makes me sick, hell my LHS will usually take a bit of a price hit on some of the bigger ticket items (kits, motors, etc) if you tell them that you might get it on Amain...the owner of my LHS hates Amain just that much!

CR has had some down falls I had a problem with a item it took awhile for resolution but Jon did pull through after his explanation I understood why not an excuse but protecting ones family and making ends meet is everyone priority but leaving things open for a long time will hurt anyone's business since competition is very competitive.

I still buy from CR since their discounts and free shipping / price is hard to beat. I hoping they can get back on their feet while stocking more electric/ motor items.

They are gone, no longer in business. But it appears the former owner may be selling some leftover stock on ebay from what I see above.
