Folks, I just got off the phone with a photographer friend today, and he was told by the local camera store dude that Forte has closed - this time for good. Now, my friend was called under the context that "Hey, I've got some paper here, and you should buy it because Forte has closed again - this time for good", but I in no way suspect that this guy is just trying to unload some paper.
Has anybody heard anything to confirm this?
Personally, this doesn't make any sense - why would somebody buy Forte, restructure, and then reopen, only to close a few months later? If their business skills are that bad, perhaps they shouldn't be in the business of buying questionable businesses.
I'm hoping that this is just bullcrap...
