** GFC Will Be Down Until June 1st, 2013...**
GFC will be temporarily closing from 03/22/2013 - 06/01/2013 to move to new offices and sell off a lot of excess merchandise we've accumulated over the past few years. In order to re-organize our physical space as well as new coding for our digital one, we'll be closing down for a month and a half or so. Details are below.
** Direct Requests Closing 03/18/2013 - Today will be the last day that we'll be accepting Direct Requests. The reason for this is that we are moving our mailing address soon and we don't want to miss any packages. In theory the Post Office will forward packages to our new place, but by the time this happens we'll likely be on our trip. So better to cut off orders ASAP.
** Package Forwarding Closing 03/22/2013 - For GFC Premium Members, you can still place Package Forwarding orders until this upcoming Friday. This should give you enough time to put your order in, have it received at our pickup store and have us send it to you before we leave. Keep in mind that if your GFC Premium expires after the 22nd, we'll be extending the expiration date two months later to make up for our down time. Sorry for the inconvenience, but doing all of this will make the site improve incredibly and it's a necessary step.
** eBay / Amazon / GFC Store - All of our external stores will be put into vacation mode until 06/01/2013 and during this time we will be unable to sell things such as gift cards, video games, etc. If you'd like to purchase GFC Premium Membership, you can contact us but we'll be unable to apply it until the store reopens in June.
All current orders will be processed continually until 04/15/2013. Any pre-ordered items that are not received by this time will be delayed until mid May when we get back. We have received the majority of existing items and should have the rest in very soon. Our next UPS pickup will be next week and we hope to have all current orders received. As usual, we'll be updating our GYROS page in semi-real time and we'll let you know of all the changes as they come.
During the time that I'll be out of the country, I'll have my computer with me and will be working on a lot of new coding. The site will remain largely the same but with more security features added and a more streamlined approach to the actual ordering process. It's a long time coming, but having some down time will definitely help.
GFC will fully return June 1st, 2013 (seems like a long time...but it'll go fast). In the meantime we'll be shipping out orders, packing up our belongings and listing on eBay many things to help downsize. See you guys soon!
