So ... ???? ... Are they dead or not?

You can't buy a new Yugo, Pontiac, Oldsmobile, or a D-tex, Gold Mountain, Tesoro or White's detector as all have stopped their production. Basically, gone or out of business. But here's the latest e-mail from White's:

Memo from White's Electronics

July 15, 2020

White's is no longer accepting packages at our Sweet Home, Oregon facility,
which includes repairs. We are not accepting returns for credit or exchange
and will not be issuing RMA numbers. All future packages received at
the White's Sweet Home address will returned to sender. Thank you for your

Please direct all repairs to our Authorized Service Center:

Centreville Electronics
9437 Main Street
Manassas, VA 20110
(888) 645-0202
(703) 367-7999
Fax: (703) 367-0868

I put the Authorized Service Center in bold because how can an 'out-of business' business 'Authorize' any service or repair? And there's no comment or suggestion of just how long they can state that before they are totally finished. Who's still there and if they are not producing anything to sell, and not accepting any repairs or packages or ???, then what are the remaining few doing? Makes me wonder how long they will linger, just as we saw with Tesoro going under.
