    Calumet are one of the supporting partners for APUG. I hope this doesn't cause severe problems here as well.

    Surely they will re-open (temporarily) if for no other reason than to liquidate existing stock.

    If they are in bankruptcy or some form of creditor protection then probably not, the courts and creditors now decide what happens to any remaining assets.

    As with most of these bankruptcies, the people that are really hurt are the ones least able to absorb the lose. The employees. My heart goes out to them.

    I'm guessing the bankruptcy trustee appointed by the court will hire a liquidation company. Funny, I just got a 20% off coupon at SPE and was going to buy something this weekend. Guess I'll wait for the tacky liquidation signs to go up.

    The entire photo industry has taken a huge hit this year world-wide. I was just browsing their site yesterday and all seemed well. I can now guess that they were hit hard here in the US.

    Guess that explains the $5.00 sale on Fred Picker video DVDs.

    And the complete shutting down of the Fidelity/Regal/Lisco film holder business they owned.

    It may be that there's little or no stock left - the bankruptcy filing lists assets as "$0-$50,000".

    Also perhaps explains why when I was doing my order for the dvd and looking around for other stuff, just about everything said "out of stock, taking orders".

    One of the items I ordered was a drop-ship from Smith Victor which has not arrived, and now I know why Calumet's customer service hasn't responded to my queries.

    Sad news all around
