August 26, 2009

In a letter sent yesterday to customers, Jack Hoey, president of Coastal Glass Distributors in Charleston, S.C., announced that the company is ceasing operations "after efforts to obtain ongoing financing proved unavailing."

"All of us at Coastal Glass are grateful for the confidence and support you have given us over the years," writes Hoey. "It has been our privilege to serve you. We wish you all the success in the future."
