Subject: Alas, poor Poor Yorick
To all our faithful customers and friends,
It is with deep personal sadness that I must announce that the Poor
Yorick Shakespeare Catalogue will be closing its doors as of October 31,
2007. Please know that I have considered every possible avenue for the
company's survival, including a number of buyout offers and
restructuring options, but it was not meant to be.
I am extremely proud of our achievements, having served the academic,
educational and theatrical communities for the past ten years, and the
only regret I feel is for any inconvenience our closure might inflict on
you, our customers.
We are beginning our liquidation process through a series of sales
offered first to you, our academic customers who have supported us most
faithfully through the years, and to our in-house e-mail list.
Our current newsletter covering these matters can be found at:
The contents and instructions regarding our clear out sale can be accessed
If you have trouble with PDF files (and the sale list is quite large),
please e-mail me off-list at
and request a word
On behalf of myself and my hard-working staff, thank you for all your
support and friendship through the years.
