We are moving!

We have been planning this move for a while now, and it is finally turning to reality.

As we prepare to move to our new location in Chicago, IL, we will be suspending our sales starting Sept 23, 2013.

We aim to resume full operations on October 5th, from our new location.

As always, we will be available via email, and phone throughout the move.

Goodbye new england bad weather - welcome Chicago bad weather :) (we love winter)

See you on the other side!

If you move to Los Angeles you will not have to put up with the cold and snow in the winter plus you can go bike riding all year.

The most important thing is to keep your feet dry and your head warm.

Dear APUGers -

We have almost fully situated ourselves in Chicago, unfortunately though, are initial location is a no public access warehouse :(.
We are working on finding a better more suitable location so we can actually meet you all midwestern folk, but until then....

We are back in full operations for all sales and service needs.

Thanks for all the support!

The Los Angele area would be much better.

Chicago makes sense logistically, if not for weather for employees. Close to the midwest and closer to either coast than the opposite coast would be. West is great for you west coasters, more shipping for us folks east, and vice versa. I think if I were setting up a mail order business with flexibility to choose location I'd look for something mid-continent too. (Ok, personally, it would be cheaper, smaller town, and MUCH warmer than Chicago, but I think Atlanta is too damned cold in the winter. The fact it's too damned hot in the summer doesn't really make up for it...)

LA - we love it! we love it! (man we love the 80's :) but, we are more of snow and winter people anyways.

Roger - as you say we are now almost exactly smack in the middle, which means shipping west is cheaper, but shipping east is not - though i must say that after a week or so of orders its fairly safe to say our shipping rates will not change at all for the east, and we are now able to offer some better rates going west.

Seems like atlanta is just damned in general. I cant say much for the chicago summer, or winter for that matter, but its not much better, or worse then our wet and hot summers, and brutal winters in Boston... check our facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=335368646581978&set=pb.276274625824714.-2207520000.1381968084.&type=3&theater) to see the 12ft in 24 hours we got last winter, and that was not all...

Chicago: THE standard for testing concrete materials is Chicago weather.
17 freeze thaw cycles per winter, average.
Perhaps the source of the statement heard often.
"If you don't like the weather wait five minutes...."

You'll love it. Provides every reason to go have a Bratwurst and Beer.

In Southern California, one goes to the snow to ski and snow board. It is only four hours to drive to Mammoth from Los Angeles through the desert.

It is not complex:
Snow goes on the mountains for skiing and snow boarding.
Ice goes on rinks and in drinks.
Putting ice and snow on the streets and sidewalks is not only a waste of a good resource, it just does not make sense.
I do not understand why people in places like Chicago, Rochester or Buffalo don't get with the program.

I like living in the Atlanta area in many ways. I'm just SO not a cold weather person though. It does get pretty hot here in the summer, but it never really bothers me that much in all honesty.

After just learning about you guys, I thought that it was too good to be true that there was an operation like this right in Boston...I guess I was right lol Best of luck to you!
