JJP knows they have a problem on their hands. Maybe it’s just a PR problem but a problem nonetheless. The silence is obviously because they and everyone knows that the minute they speak up to one distributor, whatever the news is will spread like wild fire and will raise many more questions and concerns, be misconstrued and cause more problems.
If they are smart they are formulating a coordinated message that will be shared with all distributors that can be a consistent message shared with all of us buyers on standby.
If they bungle this messaging at this critical moment, sales are on the line but time is running out. Another full week is nearly passed with no information. I hope something comes out tomorrow. Another weekend of this pot stirring and growing anxiety and concern is not good for anyone - least of all JJP.
Let me be clear. I am OK with news that’s not great on how long my wait might be. What I am not OK with is deafening silence. Responsiveness - good news or bad - is critical to keep the faith of the customer base.
