AEOPhoto Out of Business? Not responding...

I ordered a lightning trigger from AEO Photo last July. I didn't receive anything and followed up in August and was told that things were delayed due to " supply chain issues, COVID related. " I've emailed repeatedly since then and gotten no answer. I can't find a phone number or address for the company. I waited too long to request a paypal refund. Does anyone know if this company is still in business? In the meantime I do not recommend ordering anything from them.

Thanks, John

According to their website, it says the same thing "Significant delays due to Covid related supply chain issues", but that was last updated August 23, 2020 (18 months ago). Considering Adorama is still carrying their lightning triggers and related accessories, I'd say they are in business still and that site is old. Just my guess.


Edit: It shows their triggers as being on "backorder", however with Adorama that can last from anywhere from a few days to several months or even a year or more. So perhaps they don't make them anymore? Usually B&H or Adorama will take them off the site though once they are discontinued, however usually that is only after getting word from the manufacturer that they officially discontinued the model.
