I recently ordered a Konica Minolta Z5, a 5MP, 12x Optical zoom, digital camera. I checked Yahoo! Shopping for the best price, and found Broadway Photo had the best price, and decent ratings. That was Tuesday. Later that day I received a call verifying my shipping info. When that was done the guy told me the camera would ship 'today', Tuesday September 27th.

By Thursday I did not receive a shipping notification, and I like to track my orders. I called and they said they had 'oversold' my camera, and would ship it when more came in in 5 days. (They did not specify business days or not.)

So, today it's Tuesday, the 4th. (One week from when I ordered, and still no shipping info.) I go to their website and this is what I find:
Holiday Notice:
We will be closed Monday October 3rd 1:00 PM EST through Wednesday October 5th. We will re-open our regular business hours on Thursday October 6th at 9:00AM EST.
All orders submitted after Sunday, October 2, 8:00pm will be shipped when we reopen.
We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patronage.
