I couldn't speculate without knowing what their operation stateside does. As a retailer, I can tell you that working with companies based outside of the US can be difficult even if they have US offices. It can be difficult to get product, and if they're inefficient the cost of shipping is stupid expensive (sometimes more than the cost of the product).
