More than 4 months after Replogle Globes completed the move of their manufacturing facilities to Indianapolis, our World Globe Universe customers continue to be affected
by processing delays on Replogle Globe orders. In spite of their ongoing
efforts to rebuild their inventory levels, Replogle continues to experience
product shortages which result in shipping delays. Replogle continues to quote
a 3 to 4 week lead time on all globe orders.
We continue to monitor this situation and to work closely
with Replogle Globes. At this time it is not clear if Replogle will be able to
build up their inventory reserves prior to the start of the 2011 holiday
As a precautionary measure; we urge our World Globe Universe
customers who are considering giving a Replogle Globe as a gift, to place your
order well in advance so you can assure delivery before Christmas. At the
present time we are recommending a minimum of 8 weeks before Christmas.
