Supply and Demand


Supply and demand.

This seems to be the biggest issue in the industry today. It seems as though the demand outweighs the supply. It is a very frustrating situation for us as the retailer. We buy in large quantities and because of our high volume we sell out quickly. The supppliers are not equipped to restock us as fast as we need them to in some cases.

A great example is the WOW trick from Masuda. Everyone wants this and no one can get it. We pre-ordered 200 of them and were promised delivery. We only received a small handfull nowhere near the 200 promised. There are so many stories out there about this no one knows the truth or when more will be available.

With the holiday season fast approaching we are stocking up more than ever. We want to be able to deliver all of your orders 100% complete and try at all costs to avoid back orders and prolonged delivery.

Please know that our customers are top priority here at Hocus Pocus. I thank you for your continued support and friendship.

Best Regards,

Paul

Re: Supply and Demand


Hi Paul,

I can understand your frustration and it is equally frustrating as a supplier. I rely so much on the word of the people that produce for me, but I fnd that not everyone sticks to their promises unfortunately. I become very upset when suppliers pass the deadline, as this reflects directly on me and my product.

The most difficult thing has been estimating demand; knowing exactly what to produce and which styles and sizes. I tend to take orders and ten have the product made up, but again this can sometimes lead to frustrations both from myself and the buyer.
