IT is amazing how the retail shops in this country like to take advantage of the independant manufacturers . they ask for consignment , sell the boards ( making 100%+ profit ) , then dick you round for the payment for months , while the ones that want COD do the same !!
if you want us to sell to the public at wholesale & cut you out of the sales all together you are going the right way .
You know who you are , wake up to yourselves !

Hmmmmmm, that story sounds familiar. LOL
Thats why we are here Dave, to show what we have and what we can do.
I agree with Mosu in that on-line is a better way to buy and sell providing the product is known.

P.S. some of the smaller shops are doing the right thing, and we all know who they are Very Happy
Congrats to them, we apreciate their efforts.

the shops that are doing the right thing , get refused credit due to the shops that don't.
Due to companies like sector 9 flooding the shops with boards on consignment , it is somthing we have to do ( not want to ) , thats business i guess . But it is dissapointing when you are forced to remove stock from shops & heckle for payment of sold stock . Due to this ( element ) I now refuse to give consighnment (which sucks for the shops that are doing the right thing ) .
It won't stop fsu growing ( it's Just very dissapointing to us )
