Poor support for new Sovereign of the Seas partwork

margpartwseasWhile we are actively promoting Sovereign of the Seas with prime placement in-store, we could have done more had the publisher and distributor provided better support. At the very lease a floor display unit should have been provided to help us disrupt traffic with the opportunity. We’re only making 25% GP so it is reasonable to expect the publisher to invest.

    None here yet either & actually had someone chasing it knowing it would cost him over $2000 to complete it

    We only received 3 copies and sold out almost immediately so ordered another 3 which turned up promptly. 4-6 putaways for this would be a success for us.

    Re display units, we needed one for Disney Cakes, they’re spread al over the store to fit them in but our 50 or so copies would have displayed much better in a unit in the entrance.

    Same here. had enquiry, no stock. Good stock of Disney Cakes, though, and I have hopes for it.
