That's too bad they are closing the store in Alameda, it's great.

I hope that Woodcraft doesn't kill it off by slowly deleting items.

Seems like they're closing because they're retiring, not because they're in trouble. That gives me a little hope that Woodcraft will just simply leave them alone as opposed to the race to the bottom they're slowly becoming known for.

Yeah, I don't think they were hurting. They did away with classes about ten years ago just because there's so much competition for that around here(Jay Van Arsdale teaches Japanese joinery at the local community college for example) but it was one the few places around here to get Fein and Festool stuff. The coolest part about the store was that you could actually try tools out there.
