Tracey Edwards Shutters Doors

I was surprised and saddened to hear that Manchester-based agency Tracey Edwards has gone out of business. I had to look up the story, as these things tend to happen quietly... in my experience, companies tend to go under with a whimper rather than a bang. Apparently this all happened in November. As is often the case, the business is gone, but the web site remains up as if nothing has happened, a ghostly remnant of ones and zeroes lingering after 30-something years of business. Here's the Union Leader article by business reporter Denis Paiste. Despite them leaving some creditors and clients hanging, it's good to see a few comments from people chiming in on their behalf, because they were a quality outfit. More background and color on their closing can be found on this excellent blog post by Kathy Remillard. Here's hoping all involved land on their feet and have a better 2010.
