Guppy lures just online now??

Makes total sense from the builders' POV.  Low fixed costs to set up an e commerce site.  Flexibility to offer whatever you've just built, and promote your latest offerings via FB and other sites, plus sell plugs in volume to third parties for them to sell directly on SOL and fleabay while maintaining your brand equity (and hence, prices) on your "official" site/FB page.

If they sell half as many online, they'll probably make the same amount with far less labor and headaches.

Restructuring product fulfillment services, a fixed cost, will be critical.

Easy decision for Guppy. Shops sell them at $25+ when they should sell for $22. Most guys in tackle shops really just want circle hooks, bank sinkers, and bunker anyway.
