Default JonRocket.com Closed During Move

We are currently in the process of moving JonRocket.com to a new location. Once the move is complete, we will have more room (much more room!) to stock a larger selection of rocketry kits, supplies, accessories, and motors.

During the move, we are closing our online store. Once the move is completed, we’ll be back!

We understand that this is not the best time, but a combination of circumstances has forced us to close our store temporarily during the move. We hope to be back in business in time to support your holiday shopping, but, at this time, it’s not clear if we will be.

Thanks to each of our customers and friends for your support since we started running JonRocket.com over seven years ago. We look forward to serving the rocketry community for many years to come!

-- Roger (and Bracha)

Our move is taking longer than expected. We probably won't be back online until the middle or end of January.

We had run out of room in the previous location. We'll have about six times the room at our new location. We'll be able to stock more products. We'll also have more room to be able to more quickly process incoming items and to organize the packaging of orders with less risk of mistakes.

And, I'm going to have a really big workshop for building my rockets!

Moving is exciting. Moving is challenging. Moving is a lot of work And, as we are demonstrating, moving is time-consuming!

We are still working hard to get JonRocket.com back on line. We have all of our inventory in our new office. Most of it is unpacked and sorted. We still have some things to unpack.

We are also continuing to move furniture and fixtures into the office. Almost all of the furniture and fixtures are new (or, at least, new to us). Some arrived in big cartons with assembly instructions spelled out in hieroglyphics.

The office now has internet service and we are starting to set up the computers and printers that we use to process orders.

We started to “flip the switch” to enable the online store this weekend (March 4-5). But, realized that we weren’t quite ready and trying to process orders while still setting up the office was not really a good idea. Bracha and I apologize for how long it is taking, but we have decided to continue to take our time and do things right.

Now where is the box of USB cables?

I'll echo that, thanks for the update Roger. Sounds like the new "corporate headquarters" are going to be really nice when the dust settles.

Our mailing address is unchanged (PO Box 623744, Oviedo, FL 32765). Physically, we are located in an agricultural area which means that while we can operate the mail-order business, we can't have customers visit us.
