Change of ownership

I saw this today but evidently posted yesterday.   I wonder how this will change things for the designers that teach only and order less frequently.   John (the previous owner) often override his staff's decisions if he thought his company messed up vs the client.  He certainly helped me a great deal when threads went missing last year.

It is with excitement that Benjamin Ravan, CEO of Fleur de Paris announces his recent acquisition of Rainbow Gallery, effective October 1, 2015. Benjamin’s experience in the field over the last 40 years ensures that the renowned line of specialty yarns will be in good hands moving forward.
Rainbow Gallery will continue to operate as its own entity as Daniel Ravan, Benjamin’s son, will work alongside Sally London and complement her superb customer service and knowledge of the industry and this beloved brand.
We would like to thank John Schatteles for his contribution to the industry and wish him the best of luck and happiness in his retirement.
We can assure you that the quality and excellent customer service that you have become accustomed to will go unchanged. The transition period will be seamless for all our customers and partners.

I don't think you have much to worry about. Danny Ravan is organized and helpful. He's going to work with Sally London closely at first but I bet if you ask nicely, he'll be just as willing to work hard to get stuff to you as John was.
