We continue to hear how bleak things are in the economy.
How tough it is for small business.
Called TT to order FCR carb today.
Very polite young lady said they didn't have any in stock or a firm delivery date. Sometime mid Feb.
I said, OK, let me order one and at least I'll be on the list.
No, we don't do that.
What? You mean take money from customers that want to buy your product.
So how will I know when you have them in stock?
Oh, just keep checking the website. Nice.....
Now before you flame me, I'm sure there are all sorts of reasons why this business can't take my money and sell me their product.
But, as a consumer, I don't care.
If demand is greater than supply, increase supply or find new supply.
It hurts the business, because 30 days gives the consumer plenty of time to change their mind or prioritize their spending and the business loses.
