More than a year after venerable New Hampshire-based Apple reseller ComputerTown
reorganized under new management, the company has closed its doors “for the forseeable future,” according to a statement posted to the company’s Web site.
“This comes after a failed attempt to stay in business including working through with several issues with our most valuable vendor partners, including Apple Computer. Our Salem, NH facilities have been permanently shut down effective May 31st,” said the statement.
The company directed customers with order, service, credit or payment inquiries to
e-mail them, and promised that customers will be contacted by a representative within the next few days.
The news comes on the heels of recent comments and complaints made by customers of ComputerTown who attempted to buy flat panel-equipped iMacs through
a special promotion
the company offered in February. As of last week, customers who had been charged were still awaiting delivery of their units.
ComputerTown was not immediately available for comment about the closure or about refunds due buyers who participated in the iMac program; MacCentral will endeavor to provide our readers with more details as they become available.
