Tarantulla quits web

Belgian based indie mail-order company TarantullaShop is calling it a day:

Dear friends and customers, it is with great regret that we have to announce that TarantullaShop has stopped trading.

New opportunities came along, both on a personal and a professional level which have made us decide that it is time to move on.

We have always tried to deliver the best service for our customers and have always put them first from day one. Although we surely hope that our customers have shared in that positive experience, we are sorry that we are currently no longer able to continue.

No worries though: all ongoing and paid-for orders will be delivered, as from Wednesday 16th of July. (Shipping starts up again on that date, after this weeks' holiday.)

Anyway, all orders that can not be fulfilled, ultimately by the end of July, will be cancelled and refunded.

We apologise for any inconvenience this will cause.

It sounds more like a positive lets-move-on rather than a we've-got-to-stop, which is at least a nice thought as the world loses another small record concern.
