Default Garrett Shutdown

The Garrett website says that they have shut down their operations for at least two weeks.

White's website says that they are unable to process online orders at this time.

Probably had to send all employees home and close up shop. Non essential business.

Yup, which will delay the new detector releases, seeded hunts, etc... but I certainly feel it's a good decision...

I checked the Minelab web site yesterday after seeing this thread and didn't notice any mention of closings on their web site as of then.

Some companies (talking in general, not specifically detector companies) that has some stores or a salesroom where customers in the area can visit in person have went to "mail order" only.
