Apparently it doesn’t include them, that was one of my first questions to Tim.

thing is, if I was them and all independants got commission and I did not?

Little miffed to say the least - how long before they get dropped?

Site is live,
I know Tim said they'd be charging for engraving, but they've  gone in cheap - £1.00 per trophy plate, £10 to engrave on glass.

'Interesting'

Glenway are who we use as our main supplier for trophies currently, but probably not next year based on this...

Use Trend Dean, Their trophies are just as good and I wasn't let down once last year. And free delivery once a week. Only niggle I have is that the trophies don't come with plates, but on a big order I have requested free plates and they always oblige.

I see postage on the new retail site is less than we've been paying wholesale, does this mean wholesale carriage which is more & +vat is going to come down this year?

Hi Guys,

 

Just a first post, which the information may be useful for you all.

 

Its a forum which has been set up to discuss the Glenway, direct supply, whilst i note some think this is a great idea, they are clearly in the minority, Its a blatant attempt to take your datebase and end up with direct supply and cut you out.

 

Draw your own conclusion, but many of us specialist Trophy Retailers are unhappy and there is a growing number who feel that Glenway should be sent a clear message by buying elsewhere for a period of time.

 

Go have a read, and chip in to the conversation.

I know you aren't all daft and this may be genuine but the link above and the destination do not match. Coupled with being a first time poster I'm not touching it with anyone's barge pole.

Not only that, this is possibly a lot bigger forum with more members anyway and the discussion is already in progress.

Totally agree Lee - hence why the link has now been deleted!

One would suggest that when business is under threat (and that's what happening here, IMO, knowledge is power)

I understand the posting of another forum on here, and please accept my apologies

 

Alternatively ou might as well think about sending Tim your customer lists, but then if most of your business is done through the front door, i doubt he will be interested, as he only wants online customers.

 

As far as someone thinking that they will earn money from glenway for doing nothing, then you wont be too surprised to learn, then that they claim it will go to nearest dealer. So what is a dealer and who? A small retailer who spends a few grand in Lowerstoft or a large trophy retailer in Norwich, who spend tens of thousands with both Glenway and his competitors and where Glenway are trying to convince the retailer to spend more with him? Not to much of a commercial decision to be able to work out?

 

When retailers win awards for business, one would think that they should have commercial awareness, but then maybe that's not always the case?

 

On the flipside, what some of you may or may not know, is that some trophy wholesalers already supply to local football teams, football leagues, sports clubs etc The only difference here is that Glenway are taking this to the internet and are looking to capture a much larger market share.

 

So will the other wholesalers standby and watch Glenway do this or will they follow to protect there business?  So if trophy retailers don't respond and protect the business for themselves and other suppliers, then in a few years time the local trophy retailers will be left with the small one off orders and any larger customers you have, will likely be gone to your supplier.

One might consider this as a move akin to Charles Birch many moons ago, when he was buying up shoe repairers to compete against his own customers!! and what did that lead too in the end?

 

Suggest we wake up and smell the coffee...

 

All these views are my own.

Nope, you will likely have to wait  for 90 days to receive payment....
