So what's up with Monrovia Nursery?

I am looking for some answers on Monrovia Nurseries recent actions. Tried to find the executives from Monrovia here at the ANLA Clinic, but couldn't. We'll try again tomorrow. Have heard from a couple of sources an un-confirmed rumor that Monrovia got the extra 20 million dollars that they said they needed so as to stay in business.  Has anyone heard if this is true? I also heard that Monrovia sent out an e-mail the other day that said they are going into the box stores. What do you think of this, if it's true? Just a business doing what it has to so as to stay in business, or a slap in the face of the independents that have supported them all this time, or something in between? Does any one have more info?
