This is a ever changing story but what we know is today Calumet did not open. Employees were not given any notice and all websites seem to be down as of now.
The UK stores seem to remain open for now, and a new post to the Facebook alludes to a possible “re-opening” of several US stores.
All personal items including employees belongings are currently locked in the stores, we have no further info on this or how repair items will be returned.
Several customers have orders pending and my suggestion is to call your credit card company and alert them ASAP. Do not take any chances at losing money, their lack of communication and shutting down of the websites should be enough to dispute the charges.
