Gemm has finally closed for good ...

This is the most recent statement from Roger Raffee (the owner) ....

After being in the internet marketplace business since August of 1994, and as you already know, the very first internet company to serve as a marketplace for vinyl records, CDs, and other types of music related product, GEMM has found it can no longer compete in a business where the bigger companies, such as Amazon and Google colluded to control which companies get exposure in search results, and have had a long history of keeping GEMM buried from sight in those search results. Regrettably, therefore, we have ceased business operations effective July 8th, 2015. You will be receiving a notice from the federal bankruptcy court within the next week containing information about submitting your claim.

Regards,

-Roger Raffee

It's been on the cards for 18 / 24 months, Those of you who only buy through Gemm would probably be unaware of the problems, however those who are Gemm sellers would probably know all about the problems, which had nothing to do with google placement, but with sellers not receiving payments from Gemm for a long time and in recent months not at all.

Shame that as I always preferred Gemm to the other similar selling sites.

Have you any idea about what will happen to the details they hold about people?

Cheers
