The short version of the story is: we're going to open and I'm a lot more confident than I was last year at this time. Internally, there's some very frustrating things to deal with, but again, it's better than last year.
The way, the best article I've seen so far was last week's Big Sky Weekly. There's some very detailed info in there, more than most of us as employees have been told. I can't vouch for the accuracy of any of it, but my instinct says it's right.
Regarding Rio's comment of 'most vendors aren't going to extend credit', that's not true at all. All of the ordering I do is based on PO's and commercial credit accounts. All of those lines of credit are still open. We'd probably have a hard time getting a new line of credit, but we've got more than enough vendors we've worked with in the past. Over the past year we've worked really hard to make sure the right people get paid when they need to get paid.
