zippo sales or not?

would have to agree - sales of zippo lighters are past there best!

 

there are now too many people selling them, all jewellers in our area, and they are selling for less than the recommended retail prices we all go by,

 

hinds by myself sent there staff down to 'price check' last christmas, i thought that by offering 'free engraving' i would sell more than them but was wrong!

this christmas i undercut them by a pound on all the popular ones and though we shifted some more and charged for engraving i think that they are not high on christmas lists like 3 years ago!

It does make me wonder if we are paying too much for our Zippos, as I have also seen cheep ones in Jewellers windows, the profit margin isn't that great so I don't see these companies selling them at these prices if they're paying the same as us...thoughts.

 

I tried to open a wholesale account with Zippo, but they wouldn't have it, even though I was willing to spend alot of money.. :evil:
