PostSubject: Closure of Golfer's Network   Sun Jul 05, 2009 10:33 pm

To all the golfers network supporters,

i just heard from my friend who has a shop in Far East SC that all the GN in singapore have gone burst. Wonder how true is that any whether anyone can verified this source?

Anyway i was down at Far East SC on sat and GN was close. Does that mean no more cheap TM products for TM fans like me anymore...

It's discussed quite extensively in this thread.

Called GN, they say that they are doing stock check and some shops will likely to be open by end of this week. Also, currently only the ones in Warren are open.

Any bros going to warren?

It's the light at the end of the tunnel anyway. Thanks for the heads-up.

Vacant as in complete empty?

The Excelsior branch continues to look fully-stocked except that no one is there.

Wow... don't know whether to be happy or sad...

For one, I'm not sure if the recent price slash for TM clubs were due to GN or it was TM's business strategy. In any case, a lot of faithful TM lovers were very disappointed that the price went down so much within 3 mths... Me included... Sad

I guess there will always be another "GN" to take over...

Was at United square last Sat and the shop appear to be empty when I peek into the glass panel even though a paper sign stated stock take. They have been stocking taking for a while liao

Heard something nasty happened (not right to post here).

They are shut, maybe for good. If not its a very long road to recovery.

All the best to GN.

If it ain't right to post here, then don't mention it either. Now everyone is intrigued.

Fact #1: Shop closed
Fact #2: Most of us really do not know the insider story....unless otherwise.

Bright - side: Make the best of whatever equipment we have....till the next store comes around..... Very Happy

Locking it would make no sense as someone else would probably start a new thread. But let us be responsible and do not post speculations or hearsays.

No one knows for certain and I am sure there would be something official from them should they resume business or they just close shop and wind up. Either way, time would tell.

Remember the infamous NKF case? You could be sued for damages if your statement is untruthful even though you heard it from somewhere or you are merely speculating.

So let us just wait and see.
