WHY ARE YOU SCREAMING?

Here's the conundrum for a fan of Anchor Bay. Say you wanted a WHITE Taney. It's not on sale (regular price $94.98). But for $94.95, you can get both the white and gray because that set is on sale at half off.

And for those who bought the set less than a year ago, the value of that part of your collection just went down by $95 or more.

Looks like overstock is being sold off until they are gone. If LHD is discounting by 50%, the dealers were probably sent an offer to wholesale these same pieces at 50% off the original wholesale.

In these economic times, you've got to raise money from any source you can. The stuff in your warehouse that you've already paid the manufacturer for could generate the greatest income -- because you don't have to spend any money to make it.

Hypothetically, the pieces you will be bringing out NEXT cycle will be slow to generate a positive cash flow.

Harbour Lights has already laid out funds to the designer and made a down payment with the manufacturer. Before they can sell piece one, they will have paid the manufacturer in full.

Now they have to convince the dealers to order, ship the pieces to them and wait 30 days for payment.

Thus what is sitting in your warehouse is the best source for additional income.

Thanks for posting Christopher!

Not the pieces I wanted to add, but a good deal.

Any chance LHD might clearance more GLOW's?

Why is it ok for Lighthouse Depot to discount current items and other dealers a violation of their contract? I guess because Lighthouse Depot is Harbour Lights. With this in mind and some of the reasoning given for why they are discounting, I feel that it is ok for dealers to charge whatever they feel and no longer be obligated to charge suggested retail per there contract as Harbour Lights Direct no longer does it.

John has probably hit the nail on the head in that the dealers were probably given the same opportunity to discount the Anchor Bays as they were given to discount certain GLOWS a while back. Don't know for sure on that but maybe one of our dealers can let us know for sure. All I know is it is a perfect time to pick up some ABs for your collection at an exceptional price.

Frankly, the AB sale caught me by surprise. I never got anything from HL about it. Perhaps other dealers did.
