Does anyone know what's happened with iFocus?
Their website is 'temporarily closed' and when I drove past their store, it was closed with a for sale (/rent?) sign in the window? :confused:

Thanks

Engaging brain

Conclusion.

I'd say they are closed.

Disengorging brain and associated matter.

1. No signs to say that they are closing.

2. No signs to say that they are moving either.

I appreciate your concern for my plight. :crying

Yeah well pbtech do it but they at least do it with HUGE volume, and on top of that they usually have semi-reputable parts too.

QMB focused too much on "Super cheap junk quality" stuff, I took my business elsewhere, it's worth paying just that *little* bit extra generally.

PB may be cheap for some stuff, but they're actually quite pricey for others, and it's a bit of a mixed bag - I guess they trust volume on the cheap stuff, and "I'll get it while I'm here it's only $20 difference" on the other stuff type attitudes ;)

Hmmm. Ifocus is the retail division of Iway.

Maybe the companies that buy off them wholesale got some hate on them when they have to compete against the wholesaler on the retail market.

Has to be the most retarded business plan I have ever encountered.
