A notice was sent out to W Club members earlier today regarding the end of business with BIC in Japan. I requested permission to reproduce parts of the email but was asked by Alain to please stay out of it. (?)
The letter asks collectors to pass on the information to other collectors who may have ordered from BIC.
What I can say (I've said this already) is that if you had a pre-order for any (Integrity Toys or other) products placed with a deposit to BIC, get your money back. IT is offering to help you get the doll you pre-ordered if possible. You will need a receipt of sorts proving that you did have a confirmed pre-order.
Kazue, if you happen to read this, please know that my husband and I are pulling for you. Rudy, too.
