If anybody has outstanding orders with them, it may be a good idea to contact your credit card companies (if you ordered via credit card) to dispute the charges and ask for reimbursement.

The bankruptcy documentation seems to suggest that there are several very senior claimants who are likely to claim before buyers.

That's sad I was hoping to save up for one of their fancy tables.

Several former GC employees have started up their own company and the first tables are already in customers' hands. Check 'em out at https://bandpassdesign.com/
