Quoted from jalpert:
I don't know how many people picked up on that. I wasn't one of them. Maybe they could keep them somewhere in their new and much larger production facility? I'm not sure, neither is anyone.
This is bizarre though, why not say anything? Why require non refundable deposits? If the game is that good, it'll sell itself so deposits shouldn't be a big deal. Do we know much about this "new" Jersey Jack? This isn't mean to be negative speculation, but are these guys financially stable and in it for the long haul? How do we know? I'm hoping for some really good answers that lead us to believe all is well. They don't "need" our deposit money, do they?
Again, I'm not implying anything, I'm hoping someone can chime in and let us all know all is well.
Again, I'm not attacking you personally but just think on this for a moment. This investment group, which conservatively can be said to have more money than at least some third world countries, uplifts the entire operation that has been in NJ since 2013 (really since 2011), closes the factory that had produced all of the first 5 tables along with their many variations in February of 2020, invests I legitimately know not how many millions of dollars in outfitting a new building, consolidating the Illinois staff, has signs made all over, hires contractors who, during a pandemic the likes of which no one has seen before, run miles of cat5 cable, build out the production lines, bring in all new office furniture, dozens of computers, all new lighting, the new shopbot and many new pieces of equipment including table saws and the like for the new design and construction area, fronts the capital for the many parts needed to make a couple of thousand GnR at minimum, interviews and hires new production people, lands Duncan Brown and Bill Grupp amidst a SEA of other prior employees, technicians, engineers and the list goes on and on. Paints everything paves the parking lot, contracts with various new vendors for a cardboard crusher, dumpsters, etc., along with the insurance and all of the headaches of uprooting your established factory and culling together a new one amidst a work from home order, finances countless things including but not limited to the fancy GnR trailers for launch day, all the R&D for title #7 which is underway in the background, hires and trains all (mostly) new staff and on and on and on. There are countless things I haven't thought of which is one of the many reasons why I could never have taken on a job this massive and intense. Following all of that effort and time and commitment, you ask if these guys are stable and in it for the long haul?
Bit of a reach there, don't you think?
