    Default Turbo Zone Direct 50% Sale - Going Out of Biz too

    Looks like TZD is finally packing it in after more than ten years. They are looking for someone to take over their liquidation sales too. The email I received has the details:

    urbo Zone Direct must clear out inventory! Our loss is your gain!

    Well it had to happen, TZD must clear out thousands of inventory items before we must move in 30 days. This is your opportunity to save a bundle and lighten the load we must move. Here's an offer you can't beat, one we've never made before. We're offering 50% off our ENTIRE inventory for the month of November. Here are the details: You must include MOVING SALE in the comments section of your order. You must purchase at least $30.00 worth of merchandise at the net cost (after the 50% is deducted.) We will adjust the order total here. Your credit card is not charged until the order is picked to assure you the correct amount.

    As usual nothing is held back, there are no limits to the number of items you may purchase or the number of orders you may place. This offer will end November 31,2007. We expect to close out a number of titles during this sale; we will make every effort to update the web site. This is a golden opportunity for you to stock up on your favorite Turbo merchandise at a super price. Don't miss out! Turbo merchandise not sold by TZD is getting harder and harder to find. As you know everything we sell is new, factory-sealed merchandise.

    We do not know yet where we will be in 30 days so act now!

    TZD is also looking for a wholesaler that might be able to take on or take over the legacy we started in 1994. If any of you know of a company or organization that can handle bulk resale of these classic video games, parts and accessories, please use our email contact at www.tzd.com

    Feel free to write if you have any questions, you know we value your input and support.

    If that's all the inventory that they have left, it ain't much.

    Bit sad to see that there are no more Turbo Express units left, they had some still a while back. I always wanted to pick up a new one.

    yeah seems like they've moved most of what they have/had. A shame.

    You sure they are going out of business? Thought they were just moving.

    I was thinking all the good stuff is gone because they don't want to sell you the good stuff for 50% off. It will reappear after the move and the sale is over. But who knows.

    Thanks for the heads-up.

    Gonna swoop on what I can, and it's possible a guy I know is going to buy them out completely (he's going to call tomorrow).

    Seems as though they don't have any systems left, period. Oh well, I'll get my start in the NEC realm another way, at another time...

    That's a good point, they may just be moving. But they are asking if anyone is willing to take over their operation. Hopefully someone will and TZD will live on under new management.

    I need to order some Turbo Duo controllers from them. Too bad they're out of Duo power cords.

    Nah, they didn't pull anything from what I see...same stuff they've had. The good stuff has been gone for a while.
