"To go so far as to have a celebration party the night before their public announcement, makes me realize what a huge thorn in his side he's had to deal with for the past 15 or so years."

Regarding the above statement: please remember he cashed out over 15 years ago to millions of $$$$. The latest S&H may have not been his vision 15 years later, but they still carried a lot of the solid, original garden tools (even if mixed in with the more commercial items). I'm an original shopper at S&H from the beginning. To this day, I could sort through the unimportant stuff and still find many of the items that made us all notice - many are still there.

A bunch of good people lost their jobs with this news. To celebrate their loss, after cashing out big some time ago seems a bit cold. If the original owners wanted to keep it their vision, they could have but they chose to cash out instead.

I WORKED AT S&H FOR MANY YEARS AND SADLY MOURN THEIR PASSING. MADE MANY GOOD FRIENDS--FELLOW EMPLOYEES AND CUSTOMERS ALIKE. THEIR ULTIMATE DOWNFALL WAS ALLOWING THOSE WHO KNOW NOTHING ABOUT GARDENING TO TEND THE PLOT.

I'm left with two busted shovels and many other S&H items with worthless lifetime warranties... if a "rebloom" is in order, they should start with looking up the word trust, they'll need it.

Congratulations on winning a position in the Top Rants of 2009 - I will miss S & H as well.

Happy New Year!

If you go to S&H's website, you will notice it redirects to a Target site, with a Target icon next to the url address. I'm wondering if S&H will continue to design for Target.
