Mike you deserve to retire. I have been self employed for years and it's not easy. Wish you all the best and hopefully I can get down and visit more often in the future

Whoever buys it will have some big shoes to fill.  I've been really impressed with OCP and that is a reflection of the one who runs it.

I hope it stays the same.

Heck guys, I appreciate all the kind words but I am not dying and OCP is not closing, LOL. 


RIP, Mike. 

I hope you can find someone to buy run the business as effectively as you have, and that it frees you up to enjoy the hobby and any other interests.

I hate to see you go Mike. As young as you are you should be good for quite a few more years.... I know we'll see each other at a convention though. Thanks for you service to our hobby. Best wishes in your retirement.

The business has a great track record with many loyal customers.

Also, business loans are available at historic low interest rates.

If you own a building (and don't have to pay monthly rent) this is a very attractive opportunity.

You snooze you lose!
