Have you done any work online. That would allow them to shop from home. Maybe give them alittle extra incentive to buy. On my site I have a Buy 1 Get 1 Free sale.

These are wholesale customers not retail customers.I just noticed a slice deep in my wholesale volume sale with the increase in the price of gasoline.But, this too shall pass.

The biggest hit for us was 911 and 2-3 years after, we are in Canada.
I guess Jazz did come up the Mississippi... did I spell it out right USA ?

No question !!! What gas is doing to the retail & wholesale ( or for that matter merchandising in general ) is violent. Customers are so nervous to buy big volume that not only have our tangible sales fell off, but our website sales have taken a dramatic hit. I agree though.....it shal pass!! The man that can stand in the mist of a storm is a man that knows the benifits of being in it...................

My best sales came from the tourest trade retail stores but they are all over 50 to 100 miles away and a lot od mountain driving does not help. I have to keep thinking the direction I want to go. I have the press.. I can get the tees and I can do most anything so I and you guys may need to think of a direction that keeps you local.
