    Ceased trading. Apparently they have decided to close - the current economy problems, plus a dwindling market and one of the owners is ill. They have apparently sold the business to what they describe as their primary supplier. I guess this means that someone has simply acquired the assets such as the website etc.

    However, the fact that that message has been up for days doesn;t bode well.

    It's a shame, as they were always my R1 store of first choice. The same is true of many international buyers. Their prices were good, and the customer service always excellent.

    I preordered a number of products and am now wondering where that leaves me.

    I personally wondered the same thing, that they are closing doors really, cause the message is already way more than for 48 hours and they have just partially filled and sent my order, while the remaining titles remains unsent. If they are closing doors forever - it will be a big loss for the international customers, really, as they were my only DVD/BD supplier for the past 5-7 years :(

    Does time go slower in Florida? Is that why retirees move there?

    I managed to log into my acct and cancel any outstanding orders. I don't know if that will help you.

    Kingfish, I do not wish to cancel my orders because they are not charging cc before the actual shipping, and on some other forum I've read the message that indeed they have transferred their business to their biggest DVD supplier Alliance, although Allience itself seems to be ceasing distribution operations on March 16. I dunno what will become of it, but for now I will wait till March 1st, and if there won't be ANY resolution to their situation I will start looking for another supplier, although all the options I saw are not so attractive to me, and some are impossible to use cause they are not sending to Russia (DeepDiscount)... :(

    Oh, that is a real shame, they have been my only R1 supplier for a long time, now I need to go out and find another one.
    Where do people shop these days?

    I believe they probably were sold. All open orders including preorders are cancelled

    The 48 hour wait is over!

    Yes we know it was more than 48 hours and we apologize for the delay but we are certain you will enjoy the many exciting opportunities awaiting you at the new look DVD Pacific.

    Please keep in mind there are some changes between what you may have been used to and the new web store so take some time to look around and read the FAQ's.

    All back orders and pre orders have been cancelled so you will be required to resubmit all orders.

    You are given a link to a new site
    http://dvdpacific.directtoustore.com/default.aspx


    Direct To U Store, whatever that is, seems to be the new owner.

    No more domestic free shipping. Cheapest rate is $1.98 for 1st item plus .50 for each additional item
