Covid-19 Effects

As I’m sure you are aware of (unless you’ve just crawled out from under a rock in the last five minutes) Covid-19 is wrecking havoc with nearly every piece of American life as we know it. What’s worse is that it’s effects are not confined to America. China suffered it’s effects first, then Italy seemed to drown in cases and also went into a nationwide lockdown. China is still not completely back to normal or what passes for normal now. Italy is still deep in lockdown with no change in sight. Unfortunately it seems that the USA is the next big country to have the Covid-19 tsunami crash upon its shores.

My little store on the internet is going to be affected as well. While my story is pretty minor in the scheme of things it’s important that I bring this up and warn you. I operate on a shoestring budget out of my home and so I don’t keep a large supply of parts to assemble products I make. I don’t keep a large supply of bare boards either. As this virus affects world wide supply chains over the next few months I may not be able to acquire the parts or other supplies necessary to assemble boards in a timely manner. So you are going to have to make a decision not just to buy my products, but to bear with me time wise. If prices spike I may not be able to afford those parts under the current price listed for the assembled product. At that point you will be notified and given a choice to cancel your order or pay the additional cost. I will not engage in price gouging ever, so if parts prices go too high I will automatically cancel your order.

Stay safe and practice social distancing as much as possible. We will get thorough this too.
