(Retail) Evolution In Action
I read at The Firearms Blog that Amazon.com may be removing shooting sport-related items from their customer fulfillment inventory. I sent the following message to the Amazon.com PR email link just now:
Dear Sir/Madam;I have today read reports that Amazon.com will no longer be willing to meet some of my retail purchases, to wit, firearms-related items like scopes, sights, slings and other such shooting sport enhancement products. If so, I will be taking my admittedly meager business elsewhere, to an undoubtedly less satisfying transaction process, but one that doesn’t blatantly dispise my purchasing preferences.Amazon.com has a perfect right to make such a business decision (if in fact the company actually has done), but so too do the individual customers Amazon relies upon to complete the sales transaction process. I do not wish to take my paltry business elsewhere, but decline to continue dealing with any business that openly despises my beliefs and, indeed, one of the fundamental principles upon which the USA was founded.Sincerely yours,William Brown, Amazon.com Prime customer
Despite my having misspelled “despise” in the original, I hope the company’s spokesperson’s response is as serious – if more literate – than my inquiry.
