We've recently decided against carrying on with our retail sales the way we've been doing. Retail sales have become tough on myself as it's taken time away from things that I prefer to do but more than anything I hate the aspect of becoming a salesman.
Yes selling can be very profitable and sales work even when you don't but I was never looking to be a salesman in the strict sense of the word. I prefer to craft things and to work with my hands and even though it doesn't always pay as good I feel a sense of accomplishment that a salesman will never know. Plus, to be a successful salesman you need to work with a lower moral character than I'm willing to concede to employing. I left the traditional 9-5 work culture for these same reasons and I'm not about to become one of these people just to make a buck, it's just not going to happen.
Currently, we're focusing more on new services and special projects. We'll still offer many of the same products off and on as we score deals here and there so that we can continue to supply our great products at even better pricing than before. We just won't be stocking quantities of products the way we have done in the past.
To those of you who have been customers and purchased products from us in the past I want to say "Thank-You" as you've been the reason to why we've been able to stay in business so long and you are greatly appreciated by us.
