    Default NWSL shutting down

    Taking orders through June, so if there's something you've been putting off getting, now's the time to do it

    Owner Dave Rygmyr lost his wife to cancer late last year. No other words for that other than sorrow. That he wants or needs to close NWSL is entirely understandable.

    Not familiar with NWSL. When I Google it I get "National Womens Soccer League."

    I've found their Chopper II to be indispensable for scratch builds of styrene bridges and buildings.

    Thanks for that, Paul. It's a bit tiring reading posts about how THE most important thing is one's own needs instead of feeling sorrow for someone's loss of a loved one.

    That is sad to hear, both for his wife and the business. I hope he finds peace.

    I've got a Chopper II and spare mat on order. One of those items I've always planned to get "someday." A friend that works on the retail side of the industry says there's a lot of demand for NWSL products right now. I've watched a lot of them move to sold-out status at MB Klein over the weekend as people make their impulse orders.

    "This is the post I don’t want to make but the time has come. I just can’t do this without Lynda. Following is the notice I sent to all the magazines.
    =======
    After 60 years in business, NWSL will cease operations effective August 30th, 2019. The company will continue to take orders for in-stock products until July 1st, 2019. Closure is for personal reasons and sale of the business is not anticipated, although reasonable proposals will be considered."
