I'll preface this by saying that I no longer live in Detroit because I'm a sellout, yet I like to pretend that I still live there through sports, news, politics, style, et. al.

So, question is, Pure Detroit seems to have a lot nice stuff for me to buy, yet their site has been dysfunctional for quite awhile now. Anyone know if they're struggling?

By dysfunctional I mean you can't order a thing without getting this: http://order.store.yahoo.com/c gi-bin/wg-order?puredetroit+en joydetroit1

Thanks!

Wow, not sure about the site. I planned to stop into the store in the Fisher Building today to pick up a purse.

Let me check it out...

Thanks -

I already gave Pure Detroit a heads up but they don't seem to care, kind of why I'm posting here...

If you weren't such a sellout you could just stop into one of their stores. :-)

That would be quite the trip for a shirt or two, Supersport.

But I'll somewhat agree by saying that this could be a veiled effort for foot traffic; or maybe just to stick to the douches who left.

I just noticed that news on their site -- it wasn't there when I originally posted this...nor was it there about a month ago when I first tried to buy something.

Who ever said DetroitYES can't make s*** happen!

Ok, they officially suck -- Their "new site" date has been pushed back another 2 weeks for the 3rd time.

Do you need me to make a website for you? Geez.

Here's a little tip... Dont take the old site offline until the minute the new one is ready. In my 5+ years of graphic design experience I've never taken a clients old website offline until the new one was tested and up on the server. Nothing is tackier than "This page is under contruction" or "coming soon"
