Coastal Glass to cease operation

August 26, 2009

Coastal Glass Distributors, Charleston, S.C., will cease operations, according to an Aug. 25 letter to its customers from company president Jack B. Hoey Jr. The decision to close shop came "after efforts to obtain ongoing financing proved unavailing."

For the next few days the company will complete and deliver orders already received; it will not accept orders after close of business Aug. 25. Final deliveries will be made Aug. 31, according to the letter. Customer service representatives will contact customers to confirm orders at hand. All orders shipped after Aug. 26 will be on a COD basis unless prior approval is given.
