I do not know him personally, but he is a very pleasant and sympathetic person, it is a pity that this part of the story comes to an end...

I had another reply from Gordon last night. It seems he's got to relocate and that his house sold more quickly than expected - thus the sudden shutdown of the store impending. The good news is he says he intends to open the store again in the future, albeit with a more limited selection of parts. The bad news is his wife's health is what is precipitating all of this transition so my heart goes out to him. We all know how willing he has been to share passion, knowledge, and advice - to say nothing of his fantastic products.
