Newbie here, wondering if anyone has information on what's going on at worldimpex.com.



Their website has been down since Friday, their Facebook page no longer shows up and google search shows them as "permanently closed".


P.s. not sure if this is the right forum but seemed more appropriate than other sub-forums (newbie forum).


Thanks.

End of an era... at least metalmanparts is still around :)
The Impex era actually ended years ago when John left and they sold the business. The new owners lost interest in hosting the GTGs and it's been downhill since then. I used them pretty much exclusively but the end came for me when they stopped allowing store pick-up and went to internet sales and shipping only.

When I Google them it say "Permanently Closed". Bummer, I used to buy from them fairly often, even though I live in Montana.
