Some of you might have heard by now, that SBF parts out of OKC, OK have unexpectedly closed its doors effective this morning. If you have ever dealt with them, you most likely have interacted with Chris and Hollie Whittington who are not only a wealth of knowledge, but who have committed their lives for the last seven years to provide exceptional customer service for shoebox enthusiasts world wide. I won't go into the details that led up to this closure (that's Chris's story if he wants to tell it) but suffice it to say, this unexpected closure has also put Chris and Hollie Whittington out of work. Though Chris sees this as an opportunity to branch out on his own and to expand, it's going to take a little time and I thought this might be an opportunity for the SBF community to come together and take care of one of our own. Of course he would never ask, but if you wanted to drop a few dollars to firstname.lastname@example.org via PayPal, it would go a long way to help keep some groceries on the table and the lights on. Anyway, I consider these guys my friends and just wanted to get the word out, my apologies to Ryan and the mods if this is an inappropriate post and if this ends up deleted, I fully understand.
