The place has hundreds of thousands of books. Massive number of orders and state clearly that orders will take 4 weeks.

So if like me you ordered early March, then don't expect delivery until early April.

If you get it earlier, then it's a bonus

No need to be so rude tho seriously there is no need for the attack people in general were enquiring about the orders which were made long before it escalated! I have ordered books from other places which did arrive.
So we are entitled to ask questions and follow up with emails so there's no need for the Criticism.
We're all very aware of what's going on thanks

You can’t post your ‘business’ on a public forum and then tell people to mind their own business

For your own sake, don’t worry about book deliveries. Just accept you’ll get them eventually

Yeah I noticed that also.
When I did my order it said 4 weeks I guess they couldn't handle the amount of orders so it's changed to 7 weeks.
The website has now changed to closing down sale.
Begining of March it was clearance sale.

Administrators have confirmed that they have not found a buyer and that they are now closing it.
They also let half of the warehouse staff go and instead of two shifts, it works on a single shift, Monday to Friday
