I got this in my email today:

Dear Customers:

I have very sad news for you (which you may have heard) - PG Dive is closing. It is obviously no secret that business has been very slow this season. We thought we could ride it out, but it was just impossible.

This is obviously a difficult time for me and for everyone associated with PG Dive. There are very practical matters to be handled as we try to figure out just what will happen to the store generally and to all the transactions and activities pending or in progress. All I can say right now is that you should call or write to me and I will do my best to respond as quickly and completely as possible. As everyone knows, we have always tried hard at PG Dive to be friendly, honest and candid with all of our customers. As we end the wonderful relationship we have had with all of you we look back with pride on what we were able to accomplish and will work to bring everything to a reasonable conclusion in the next few weeks.

While I am terribly disappointed that PG Dive had to end this way, I have some satisfaction in knowing that we tried a lot of different and creative things in the past five 5 years and I think we advanced the sport of scuba diving in the Boston area. Any business with such a short season is difficult and admittedly we didn't have quite enough capital when we started, which led to some financial hurdles at several points in the exciting life of the enterprise.

So I leave with a host of terrific memories, a flock of friends and a determination to get my next adventure - whatever it might be! - off on the right foot. I have absolutely no regrets about the 15 or so years I've spent around scuba diving, and no intention of moving on to tennis, sailing or some other sport. So, I'm sure our paths will cross again, somewhere, sometime!

With thanks and sincere best wishes,

Paul Stewart

Spoke with a few friends today....the store is boarded up and I have a friend who had paid for two tanks in adv for $750, was told by Paul to call credit card company and have them reverse the charges.......Too bad, from what I understand there is a serious amount of debt to be taken care of at that store.

Wow, that's too bad. I went by there on Sunday and couldn't figure out why no one was there. That was a great place.
