I certainly see your point and I agree it MIGHT be easier to find. I just don't like the way the smaller retailer is treated. They were, at the beginning, at the forefront of the Webkinz craze. If it wasn't for the smaller retailer, so many of us would have NEVER picked up the cute furry animals for the grandkids and opened up this new world for them. Just disappointed, I quess.

Wow that's tough. How do you pick who gets them. I called my little country store and they said not to worry i'm (like always) the first to have ordered it. I told them what wi said and they said they bet they're going to get a lot of calls today.

thanks Justin. I certainly hope the rumor is true and it is at a store near me! I chances of getting one webkinz for Christmas is already low, and if I choose this one it would be near impossible!

I would rather not have any then have just 2 and have to pick who gets them and who doesn't....and it's not Robert's fault, he can't ship something he doesn't have, it's just totally unfair of [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] to treat their retailers like that, no wonder so many of them stop selling Webkinz, I live out in the country and the nearest dealer is 65 miles away, that's why I order on-line, plus the vact that I can pre-order and know I'll get my order, this kind of puts a crimp in that don't you think?
Oh Darla, I know exactly how you feel ((hugs)) I am hoping that you will be able to find these precious Christmas pets for all of your Grandchildren by other means. It may mean a lot of hop-shopping.
Thank Goodness that Ameriwade gave us a pre-emptive shot at what we are up against

They place those kinds of limits on our local retailers also. They do get discouraged too. My favorite retailer was Henny Penny's and they closed. I am thinking others will drop the line. It is not just about the webkinz. If retailers want to sell the webkinz they have to agree to carry a lot of other things... Wonder how Walmart and Kmart get around that? I guess that only means gift shops? I am glad to see webkinz in those stores so just curious...

*urk* I am NOT at work today to receive calls...I can't imagine what is happening there.
The last time I voiced my displeasure about this to head office they told me that the pets I order are not guaranteed and that I should NEVER pre-sell and that it is my own problem. I thought that was a rather convenient way to pass the buck...so I went LOOKING for the pets they wanted and I PAID RETAIL so that my customers who pre-ordered could have the ones they had asked for.
