I know a couple years ago they were planning on moving to a larger location.

When he was closing he said the new one would be open for fall.
From the complete lack of communication and knowing how he normally hypes everything crazy and way in advance. I'd say they are not coming back.

I would think its hard for a retail only shop to make anyreal profit. And blue world was mostly a fish only store with the odd shipment of lps in.
I think most stable stores use services as a mainstay with retail as a extra

This is what I think too.
And blue world was a bad fish store the last year they were open, getting the most basics of fish, and only mediocre samples at that.
With how much big als has stepped up their marine stuff in the last two years if blue world stands a chance they are going to need to do something big.
