Ordering on Penn Website - New Tariffs

4 posts in this topic

I was just visiting the Penn website and saw that they will not be fulfilling orders from there. I also noticed that the reels I was looking at were listed as out of stock. I have a couple of questions. 

 

What gives?

 

Is this situation going to impact product availability  through your retailers?

 

And on a slightly different topic, what is Penn’s strategy for dealing with the new tariffs. Is this going to be an immediate price hike for all your goods being manufactured in China? 

 

And the intersectional question, do you know if  the incoming tariffs have driven a spike in demand, or is your lack of stock being driven by increased demand for some of your great new products, and improved brand strength?

Be interested to see what the Penn guys say (if they are allowed to say).  Don’t know if Penn is still affiliated with Berkley and Ugly Stik, but those websites have the same message.  OH

Ps. My own thoughts on reading the new policies was that the manufacturers were stepping back to not compete with their retailers and distributors.

Alfred,

 

The answer to your question should've popped up on the Website, we’re prioritizing our retailers at the moment :

not surprised the deals last year were so good for quality reels. I like the Slammer3 4500 more than any reel I've owned for inshore fishing.
