Online Book Orders

I just received a reply to a query I sent to the (Australian) Angus & Robertson online bookstore. Part of the (very quick) response that was unrelated to my query was quite surprising:
"Angus & Robertson is currently in the process of developing a completely new
website. The refreshed Angus & Robertson website will be available in April.
During the transition to the new website, customers will not be able
to purchase items via the Angus & Robertson website
." [my emphasis]
That seems really crazy to me. If losing 5+ weeks worth of online sales was not enough, what happens if their new web site project overruns? They lose more sales! I can only assume they don't currently sell many books online...
