Re: 14ers.com Store SALE - 25-40% Off

Bill,

Maybe focus on easier to ship items only? Magnets, Stickers. Is there any legal way to provide printed materials? Maps, Trip guides, etc? Although any numbskull can hit the PRINT button. Maybe 1 or 2 page versions of Trip guides would be tempting. I know that I'd pay a couple bucks for a 1 page (two side) version of a 14ers.com trip guide for my Chicago Basin trip, etc.. Maybe laminated, or on special paper. That is something that would take me 3-4 hours to prep myself, not to mention illegal use of work color printer. :) I'd easily pay $20 for a 5-6 peak trip that I'm planning; just to avoid the hassle. I would think that we could get some VOLUNTEERS to develop ONE PAGER/TWO SIDE versions of trip guides, with only the most critical information on it: information from car to summit and back, mostly just crux information and pictures and a small topo.

Either way, two things to deal with: Cost of inventory, and cost and hassle for shipping. Reduce either and the store becomes hopefully easier on the Middlebrooks. \:D/

It's been a good run but I'd like to kill the store by the end of the year. I may have decals and a few other items into 2014 but those will also go away when I sell or end the site in early 2014.

Bill, I'm sure a year or two from now when the site has new users, you'll probably get suggestions to open a store or something to sell t-shirts!
