rust

I used some FrogLube and a blow dryer. I'll probably order a stainless one.

So when I went on their site the other day, I was kind of ticked that you cant order all of their products from their site. Few things are as annoying as when you see something useful and you can't purchase it. On their site you can buy a few things but have to go to a dealer to buy most everything else. I think Filson is just as bad.

Trouble is you call the "Dealer" and if they don't have it they have to order it and that typically takes some time. Since this stuff is generally an impulse buy...in the end you say "I didn't need it anyway". In this case I had a coffee too many and sent them off an email...Remember if you sense "Dick" in the writing it was the coffee...lol!

To whom it may concern,
I can guess that you’ve heard this all before and I read you do not like to compete with your dealers, however you are actually sending your customers elsewhere to buy inferior products by not offering ALL of your products on your site.

Your dealers do not stock all of your products. I for one am not interested in calling a dealer and placing an order only to wait to have something drop shipped…and don’t get me started with customer service on the dealers side. I really think all of your products are great, but until I can order from you, I won’t be ordering…my loss. Thank you.

The (surprise) Reply!

Two things would happen if we sold everything from our web site. We would lose dealers and business abd have to raise prices AND we would have to hire a kit more people to deal with orders and shipping (a bigger space too) and would gave to raise prices to cover that . Bottom line is it would cost you, the customer, more to buy our products.
And if you are willing to buy from our web site then why not buy from a dealer's web site? Same difference and it is cheaper in the in the long run for you.

Bill, Amazon stocks tons of them. It is hard to get any easier than that.

yeah...I regret (somewhat) my email to an extent. He replied, but I just don't get that business model. The internet is such a powerful selling tool and with all of the mobile applications and ecommerce it would make sense to make purchasing a product as easy as possible.
