Under Fire: IASC vs the Core Skate Retailer

Under Fire: IASC vs the Core Skate Retailer

by The Editors on January 30, 2007

It seems the IASC suppliment to the February issue of Transworld Business is making the rounds at retail. One of the best bits we’ve seen so far is from the Sacklunch Forums, written by Mr. Coke and Smoke.

The Core Retailer’s market is continually being attacked, and drawn away, by non-skating “skate shops”. Which are supported by non-skating “skate distributors” that will sell to anyone and everyone. And, they are supplied by these non-skating “skate brands” that are represented by IASC. If IASC really wanted the help of the Core Retailer, then, they’d do the obvious thing. And, they would do it now. Today. That is: Give the exclusives on “branded product” back to the guys that should have had them all along…….. the Independent Skate Shops. . . .Until then, all of this “Under Fire” hubbub is gonna fall on completely unsympathetic ears. That’s guaranteed.

If you read the enitre post you’ll see a retailer’s vision of where the whole “blank future” began. And, according to Mr. Coke and Smoke, it’s been in the hands of the IASC manufacturers all along.
