Sorry to hear this news. At least you are getting advance warning. That is better than what happened to many people. Boy, if it were me, I would take their offer of the product. If nothing else, you can sell it on ebay. The way I look at it something is better than nothing since it is unlikely that you will get money back. Are they offering you the full value of the maintenance weeks?
That said, I would contact your state's consumer protection agency and talk to someone there. I am sure than Dan or Liz can provide some words of wisdom for you. Take care.
Thinner is better...........

Well, speaking from experience, I second the notion that "at least they gave you notice".. And at least they're offering you product. Liz and I got neither..

That said, you should definetely go up the corporate ladder.. Is your shop a franchise or corporate owned? That makes a difference. You should also contact your State Attorney General's office of consumer protection and give them the skinny on what's going on.. I would do that ASAP!! They can advise you on your rights and what you might expect.

Jamie, What center do you go to? I'm also in Oregon and this has me worried.
