Loss of Ticketek affected our magazine sales

As I wrote here in June, we had Ticketek taken off us when Westfield took over our centre – Westfield did a deal years back to take over Ticketek in their centres. Anyway, this past week we have seen a cost of losing Ticketek. Our sales of the AFL Grand Final Record are down by 75% – sicne we’re not selling AFL tickets. The GP loss is in excess of $300.

I’m sure there are other losses from add-on sales, not just theĀ AFL Grand Final Record.

    We sold 6 AFL records this year. Didn’t get them until Thursday so only 2 days to
    sell before the GF.
    Very disappointing and I know we did not
    have an SA team in it but we always sell the Record and we usually sell out.
    I think the price was very high as well.
    ps. we also offered them to people buying
    MCG tickets from ticketek but the response was very small.
