AcroBoo Commerce operates a growing list of e-commerce stores – all dedicated to providing consumers with high quality, brand name products at the very best prices. Since Amazon's pull out from California, retailers should know; there are other online shopping malls that are growing to meet the needs of the people and a new tax law in California will not hinder that goal. Acroboo Commerce is also looking for Manufacturers who want the benefits of selling online, without the responsibility of maintaining the web site and managing the orders to discover that AcroBoo’s online stores are a perfect solution. Especially when Amazon has dropped you.

This Saturday is not their last day. Borders stores will continue receiving shipments until distribution centers are depleted and this should take them until sometime in Sept.

California government has grown so big that taxpayers can not afford to live here. Every time I turn on the television, read the newspaper or read an article somewhere it refers to another California State tax or fee that I have to budget into my fixed retirement check. The new $150 fire fee, the $15 burn fee, now you can't purchase from a store that doesn't operate in California without being taxed. The State of California even taxes my taxes when I complete my Form 540 each year. You know Oregon is not to far, maybe I will just start shopping there to survive !
