Our friends over the the coal forum shared this with me: http://kennebecjournal.mainetoday.com/news/local/5240413.html Apparently, this is a new wrinkle. Even promised stoves are not gonna be made or delivered. Based on the information we have now, it is Harmans fault, not the dealers. Dealers were promised and scheduled (and therefore sold product) based on what Harman said....and a note went out to dealers this week stating otherwise. Hopefully some dealers will fill us in more. Interesting double whammy for Harman.....go out of business one year (forced sale) and unable to produce product the next year. Amazingly enough, this might help them since folks will cancel orders, etc. so they won't be as far behind (being optimistic, here)..... At this point, only a Harman stove IN STOCK is truly a Harman stove! ----------------- From Article: "Hundreds of people who hoped to fend off huge oil bills this winter by installing a pellet stove are being told their orders will likely go unfilled. Rocky Gaslin of Rocky's Stove Shoppe in Augusta learned Tuesday that Pennsylvania-based Harman Stove Company is unable to deliver more than 300 pellet stoves promised Gaslin just a few months ago. Harman dealers across the state were given similar notices this week, Gaslin said. "We sold based on the number they said they would give us. Then they changed (the numbers)," Gaslin said. "I'm extremely frustrated. People are counting on them." Gaslin, who spent much of Wednesday on the telephone delivering the bad news to his customers, plans to meet with Harman officials in Pennsylvania on Monday and hopes to return to Maine with more information and, ideally, more stoves. "We have to get some stoves for them," Gaslin said. A phone message left for a spokesman at Harman's parent company, Hearth & Home Technologies, was not returned"
