Store still shelves Silfkin's sefarim

I stopped by a sefarim store at a local haredi neighborhood last Friday, and was pleased to discover that Rabbi Nosson Slifkin's books are still on the shelves, despite the recent rabbinical ban.

I don't know why this is: whether word of the ban even reached this bookstore, or whether the proprietors or clientele are even followers of the ban's signatories, etc. The same store carries books by Rav Soloveitchik and Rav Shlomo Aviner, so clearly they either aren't that narrowminded or don't let ideology get in the way of revenues.

Any reports from other parts of the world?

Dear Mr. Zman Biur,

I remember seeing in Jerusalem a while back the posters announcing the ban. Without expressing an opinion on the matter itself, I feel very bad for all those involved and for the Jewish community.
