I’m trying to get OBSF-30’s, OBSF-24’s, JLF-TP-8YT in stock at my comic shop in Davis, CA. I found a distributor but they need a huge minimum order for a decent price. If I order less than that huge amount I’d have to charge $4.50 per button and the sticks would be about $30 each. I’m hoping to build into a larger order down the road.
We do have a growing SFIV community and a lot of our players know tons of people in the area. I would also be open to selling them online. Bottom line: Would you pay the extra cost for free shipping or for the local availability?
Edit: I think I have enough votes to get an idea. It’s about 50/50. I’m going to go ahead with the order soon, but see if I can save enough to just buy the huge quantity for the good price. Thanks everybody.
