Cost Plus 15%

Online Sales At Cost Plus 15%
Posted by: Dave Cool

It looks like I won't be able to make the Midland show this week-end. Sorry about that, folks.

For the Ottawa show that I missed a few weeks ago I offered free shipping in a news item (sorry Sympatico addresses - all yours bounced back for some reason). There was negligible interest from this. I also had 300 flyers on my table at the show giving free shipping, but have received not one order - or enquiry, even.  It surprises me that clients will buy thousands of dollars worth of products at a show, but when offered the same items at a lower price, delivered freely to their door, no-one is interested. What am I missing?

I have more stock than ever at the moment, after stocking up in popular lines like Atlas, Digitrax, Peco and Soundtraxx - see the above news item (if you received it) for details. For a little while if you place an online or email order for in-stock items and mention "Cost Plus 15%" I'll send you confirmation with the items at 15% over my unit cost. If you are okay with those prices we''ll go ahead. If not, we''ll talk. There will be no lower limit but actual shipping will be charged (unless you pick-up).

If the above is too complicated just make me an offer on what you need - I may just accept it.

Have a great week-end,

Dave Cool
