Quote Reply We have temporarily shut down the store.
Basically, the issue is we have been running the store from Canada. Its much more expensive to ship from Canada, but we used to be able to make up the difference with the exchange rate. However, with the collapse of the USD that difference was no longer there and the cost of shipping increased for you the customer.
We began to receive so many complaints, and frankly realized how ridiculous the costs got.
The decision was made to move operations of the store into the USA, but just note that this isn't a tiny change. We're currently working on spinning up a solution over there so that our american customers (who make up about 75% of the store's business) have better shipping options. It will not affect Canadian customers, as its actually cheaper to ship into Canada from the USA than it is Canada-Canada most times (go figure). Our European customers note we haven't forgotten about you but frankly we just don't have a good idea for how to handle this yet.
Anyways, your patience is as always appreciated. We'll get something new in place, and make sure that it works for our customers, so you guys can stop paying so much money to rock the Newschoolers gear you want!"- Mr.Bishop
