    Are you aware that Kitchen Etc are running a "we are bankrupt" message on their site?

    Errr, no. Thank you Abigail.

    Running to take down a few (luckily very few) pages.

    Well, so much for a nice lazy afternoon, time to be replacing and taking down a lot of pages..
    Now that explains why CJ sales have been slow today...

    I don't know what would make me feel better, a stiff drink or a temper tantrum. Maybe both.

    Thanks Abigail. If you hadn't posted this info it might have been days before I noticed.

    Is cooking.com worth bothering with? How are we set for alternatives?

    Darn, they are a long-term affiliate play for me. I have like 4 sites dedicated to their product lines. This is going to be a PAIN to swap out.

    At least they are paying what they owe us... I wish every company was as considerate.

    Heh, they should at least get some adsense up on that front page, why not make a few bucks.
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    Just got this in the mail:

    The KitchenEtc web site has temporarily closed.

    In June 2004, KitchenEtc filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection.
    Pending the outcome of ongoing efforts to re-organize and emerge from
    bankruptcy, we have suspended our Internet activity as well as phone
    orders.

    We will continue our best efforts to fulfill all previously placed
    orders. In some instances, we may be unable to obtain adequate
    supplies from our vendors and will be forced to cancel orders for some
    products. We understand how upsetting and disappointing these actions
    are to the customers who have trusted us with their business, and we
    apologize deeply for the difficulties this may cause.

    Commissions will be credited to partners for orders placed prior to
    this action. We want to thank all the partners for their diligence in
    driving sales to the site.

    Regards,

    The KitchenEtc Web Team

    So glad I am on a Database: deleting 17,870 product links.

    Are there any other kitchen merchants with a feed out there?

    Webmasters need to get out of the house and pick up a newspaper once in a while.

    Kitchen Etc. started boarding up windows about three months ago.

    I *just* updated one of those sections!

    Looks like I'll be doing a LOT of deleting.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Hey Sandra, I wasn't being ungrateful for the warning Abigail gave today. I was referring to Chief's comment:

    If I had that kind of information you guys can be sure I'd share it.

    I assume that most people read the news summary blurbs in their local newspapers, and on the front page of the national newspapers.

    Not necessarily, if it ain't on the net I probably won't see or hear about it unless someone tells me. Plus Kitchens Etc doesn't exist in our area so if there was a mention it was probably buried somewhere in the business section.

    Well pardon me for not regurgitating news that was reported in all the newspapers and TV and Radio newscasts.

    I'll be back at 11:00 PM with a recap of today's late breaking news, and the extended weather forecast.

    Good! This place needs a news feed!

    As for seeing the news sooner, what Deborah said.
