    Yay.. another store I have ordered with has closed down... ;_;
    I had the big Sakura stars bless you figure on pre-order with them, pretty sad about losing this one.

    I guess I'll just pre-order from Japan from now on.

    You're right, a business going under, usually means, customers with small amounts owed won't see any of their money paid back, but have to rely on their chosen payment method, to see if they can make a claim that way. Only their bank, in terms of credits going, suppliers and possibly some business customers are the only ones getting a share of any asset liquidation. That's how I've seen it usually happen with UK businesses.

    DYRL (2 months ago) #28559799Bad money management is a common thing, but to have three shops go under in the span of a year is pretty strange
    I could understand this better if we were in another global economic decline, but we're not are we?

    One could say this a conspiracy all together...

    Or it's a legitimately good time for company to go bankrupt. Nah.

    Shikaree (2 months ago) #28567358I also thought it was odd they do not make any statements. But someone suggested that maybe they were advised by lawyers to not say anything. I don't think that's likely, but perhaps possible.
    A bankruptcy will discharge many debts, including the debts to buyers. So don't know what you mean by bringing it up. A bankruptcy "pays" no one. It doesn't just make money appear. =P


    Oh, I think I got "forgiving" debts confused with covering them perhaps. As I said, I have no real knowledge on the subject. But yeah, the silence is the main thing that confounds me

    Lesson to me and to others, probably, stick to buying from Japan where the market (Customer base) is huge and companies have the tolerance for market fluctuations. Its most likely that the number of collectors outside japan, dwarfs in comparison to those in Japan.

    hugtower (2 months ago) #28560384That's not what I'm talking about. I can understand businesses go under etc. I'm talking about them taking the money and running with little to no word

    skylinedo (2 months ago) #28559870bc of market fluctuations both in japan and abroad. Shipping and customs taxes etc further complicates things. And here in the age of the internets, japanese companies are very competitive.
    Ooverseas companies are forced to use surface/ocean shipments to sstay profitable. And months later when the shipment reaches port, gguess what your entire shipment couldve massively depreciated not thats there was much profitability in the first place. Mix in defects and customer dissatisfaction and life is miserable! I used to work anime retail for japanese company stateside
