Roger, again, I thank you for the offer, I fear that nobody is Grasping the reason I am shutting down. I have a ton of stuff right now and now where to store or move it to. My store (when it was running at it's peak) was making me between 2 and 4 hundred dollars a month. The sales are not the problem, the website or traffic to the site is not the problem. I have a small 1 bedroom apartment and I have not had a livingroom or a dinning area in over a year, because I have so much boxed of stuff sitting in there. I can't walk in here, I am literally swimming in merchandise. Yesterday, I made some room getting rid of what I knew that would never sell. why by a 4K coco when you can get a 32 or 64K for relatively the same price.
If I sold it on your site, I still would have the same problem with storage and space. Yes it may move a bit faster, but in the end I would still have to move and store it all somewhere.Be sure to stop by www.thecocolounge.com and www.iboughtavoodoolaptop.com Proud Microsoft Supporter, User and Tech since 1982
