The Delta Force Army Navy store is in fact still open for business. We were 99.9% sure it was closed as we had tried calling all three numbers and got a disconnected tone and our email to them got bounced. Of course, the soaped windows and closed doors didn’t help.
Either way, we were wrong not to send one of our 17 investigative reporters out in the field to make sure they weren’t closing down. We were so busy inaugurating our new 6-story offices and hiring 10 more photographers that we didn’t get a chance to double check our story. Oops! Sorry! It
won’t may not happen again. Promise.
In the meantime, we did speak to the owner of the surplus store and he was incredibly kind. He said that the storefront is open when it’s open, mainly because they are in the midst of organizing what they are selling. Most (if not all) of their business is conducted online and the reason their windows were soaped? “If they weren’t, we’d constantly get people coming in!”
So there you have it. In return for our error we’d like to ask all of our followers to check out their site, and yeah, buy something nice while you’re at it!
