Best of luck to them.
Racing may be a dying sport... but in their case, stupidity totally ruled!! I totally blame the upper management for the closing..
Its tough to have a brick n mortar car parts shop.. The prices will be higher and you have to add an additional 8% for sales tax.. So that means you have to go out of your way to accommodate your customer and they didnt!!
Almost every time I stopped in to buy something from them, I would be greeted with an attitude.. or with someone that is stupider than me.. I would be told that they dont have what I need in stock, but they could order and it would be ready for pick up the next day..
If I wanted to wait until the next day, I would order it from you.. and save a few dollars also..
They moved the store from Lincoln Ave to hi end exotic car park and instead of taking advantage of the additional exposure, they seemed to have scaled back... back so much they ended up closing the store.. lol
And we wont even go into the time I took my race car there for their chassis dyno, max'd out there machine as soon as we went WOT and then got charged $300 for the set up fee..
I hate to see the history of that place close down, but the owner of the shop was real dumb ass...
ok.. rant off.. please continue with your everyday life..
