ChannelFireball will temporarily stop sending orders due to Coronavirus

ChannelFireball is one of the largest stores in the world

By Leon, 03/19/20

ChannelFireball announced today that it will temporarily stop sending card purchase orders. Orders placed from March 20, 2020 will wait until further notice. ChannelFireball is one of the largest stores in the world, sending card orders globally; it also has one of the most renowned teams of professional Magic players, as well as owning CFB Events, the company that manages MagicFests.

"In order to ensure the safety of ChannelFireball staff and our community, we have made the decision to temporarily shut down ChannelFireball warehouse operations, starting on Monday, March 23rd. Any orders placed before Friday, March 20th, at 11:59pm, will be processed and shipped as normal, but orders placed after that deadline will not be shipped until we resume full operations (which we will do when we deem it prudent)."

He summarizes the announcement in a few points: -

"We are closing our warehouse in order to keep everyone as safe as we can"

-

"All orders until Friday at 11:59pm will be shipped normally"

-

"We are offering 10% store credit back on purchases until then"

-

"Our buylist will remain active, and the Buylist Bonanza promotion will continue this entire month"

-

"We have plans regarding content – stay tuned, and we will announce them soon"

Seeing one of the world's largest stores momentarily closing its doors shows the concern that the Coronovirus pandemic is bringing to the world population.
