Parkers is dead?

It looks like Parker International is no more as their website is closed. I used them a lot and their prices were good. I wonder what went wrong.

shame - they seemed to have good selection and reasonable prices but neither the profile or the lowest price to really compete with the CRCs, Ribbles and Merlins etc.

Retirement.

They are trying to sell the business. In the meantime they are selling off remaining stock via ebay.

Never heard of them or used them, but a quick google suggests they are still alive on ebay

Shame, used them quite a few times, found them to be very well priced and good stockers of campagnolo.

I've used them a lot, everything from complete groupsets to a pair of gloves, and the service has always been spot-on. Happy retirement.
