Like everything we have done with Alimay Sports, this email is going to be simple.

4 years after starting as a college project — Alimay Sports hasn’t reached the size that we wanted so that it would be a more lasting company.

So this week we’re starting the process of closing down the company.

That’s it really! We wanted it to be simple. There are some more details below in case you want more information, but we didn’t want a long drawn out goodbye speech! Just want to say thanks for the kind words along the way, and for buying with us.

What happens now:

  • The store won’t be available for ordering any later than this weekend
  • All current orders are being shipped as normal until we turn off ordering
  • We will be available by email for any outstanding order queries etc. by clickinghere.
