Will be interesting to see further comments on this one, but a big hip hip hurray to all the distributors out there! I’ve see quite a bit of flame for distributors selling pins at the moment over retail, but I think as we are all grumpy about the manufacturing and parts delays we fail to realize that if distributors don’t have product to sell, they don’t make money. Many of their costs continue yet their revenue is greatly affected. If manufacturing delays continue, I strongly believe the network will shrink in 2022 with some not surviving an environment where they can’t make money as they don’t have product to sell.
Lots of good distributors, this is many’s livelihood. So three cheers for our awesome distributors as we head into the holiday season, without you, we won’t have these awesome toys in our game rooms, providing happiness and joy to ourselves and our families.
