Yesterday I saw a number of hits on ‘macdurgin closed‘ and ‘macdurgin sold‘ coming here, I, of course, having done a post about the possibility, now categorically voted against, of a sex shop opening within the MacDurgin building. So, I made a call or two. Yes, MacDurgin has been sold (or at least that is what I was told by somebody who would know). I was, however, glad to learn that not too many people were affected. From what I gather only two full time employees were left at the end. I was glad to hear that. There were some good folks that worked there or at least used to come to work there.
It has been 10 years since I was booted out. So I really have no associations with the place.
I found this on this computer. It seems to be the only thing from MacDurgin I still have. It was probably the last newsletter that I produced while I was there.
I checked their Website while I was on the phone yesterday. It seems to have been wound down. For a start the logo has been removed. That might have been a condition of the sale.
I did find this statement, and the last sentence of the first para. did have me scratching my head. Ah! Talk about a Non sequitur.
