call me crazy, but i don't think disc golf stores are much better. they jack up prices by like 75% some places. i know you have to make a profit, so i'm not complaining. i just sell discs too so i'm not one of the people being screwed . and i should probably point out that dgdave has a disc golf store, so it's not like this is any different than normal business. you guys are acting like he's stealing. he's just buying discs for more than he would normally buy them in an attempt to make a bigger return. it's just business. kinda like if he had been selling generic discs before and now he's investing in designer discs or something (replace the word disc there with anything involving clothing in a department store and you understand everything about the clothing industry)
I wont call you crazy, just stupid.
"Jacking up the prices..."
Lets see....considering that NO DISC GOLF DISC ON THE PLANET sells for the MSRP Id say we are doing what we need to do to survive. Obviously, you sell discs out of your trunk or on the internet as you dont understand what an OVERHEAD is. Its a selection of bills and debts you pay every month to maintain your business. As we actually RENT PROPERTY to SELL DISCS we have to charge a little more than the normal internet seller and/ or basement vendor, who are only in business to make "some money on the side" or to just profit off disc golf.
Sorry for trying to bring disc golf more into the mainstream, and sorry for working to make disc golf better than it is at least in our area.
Ill make you a deal...Ill lower my prices when you start paying my rent.
so... hate everyone, do we? i was making a point FOR sellers, which you obviously didn't get. calling ME stupid is pretty much the STUPIDEST thing you could have done. i'm probably the only person who agrees with you. brilliant.
by the way, i don't think calling people stupid is a very good way to add to a conversation. kinda makes your argument disappear behind inflammatory words. maybe if you try acting like a grown up you'll find that it gets you further.
look, i understand that you probably own a disc golf store or something and want to defend your honor (or something to that effect). that's fine, but disc golf isn't big enough yet to have your own store dedicated to the sport. sure, plently of cities have them. that doesn't mean it's a good idea. if you want to try to get by, you need to sell discs online. that way you don't have those same expenses like rent and all of the rest of it. yes, there are fees, but it's nothing like rent and selling the disc usually pays for any fees you have. then, make the customer pay for shipping (which is standard, obviously) and you make a solid profit. the only stores that can sell discs and get by are either selling discs on the side (say a sports store like play it again) or an online business. don't blame the rest of us for your poor business decisions.
