made it out alive for black friday/cyber monday with just a set of Reds from my local

Xmas is right around the corner so it's likely that retailers will slash prices again to clear inventory before the end of the year.

This was the first time in a long while that we saw deck prices dip below $30, I wonder if retailers and brands have shot themselves in the foot by overstuffing customers now (sacrificing future sales) or skewed their expectations on prices (customers not willing to pay more than $35 for boards).

I was at my local this weekend and they had stacks upon stacks of boards in the back room and the wall was flush. Iím talking at least 400 boards in stock for a shop that has minimal online sales.

Talking to a couple of other shop people and things sure are looking "interesting" in that regard.

Way too much stock everywhere and now with all those sales, there might be even less purchased between now and Christmas, but it is also surprising how many regular people don't jump on the sale wagon and just go looking for something with no regard for the price anyway.
I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

Hopefully more sales come around, I held strong and didn't buy anything skate related (injured) but now I've set my sights on something for post recovery and I missed all the good ones!

Retail businesses are in a tricky situation rn. A lot of them placed big orders during the high demand/supply shortage of the pandemic and are sitting on a glut of inventory. A potential rail strike (which i support) would put more pressure on supply too so clearing house now could mean problems down the line. Looks like our overlord have decided to take the railworkers bargaining power away though so who knows what'll happen.

Anyway, tough spot, especially for a fast fashion business like skateboarding.

Also if youíre a pal and grab a board or something from the site, let me know in the message section and Iíll throw in a free shop hat or talkboy tee in with the order.
Hoping to have everything up on there soon!

you shut down the railways you only worsen an already grim economic situation. I get people want to support unions, but it's like if suddenly the electric power industry decided to strike. it harms everyone.

And anyone who doesn't support the workers in this situation does not understand the economic dynamics of what is going on.

The railworkers are striking for BASIC paid sick leave that every other major country provides for ALL workers normally. Let alone during an ongoing pandemic we are all being forced to work through.

The wealthy people in charge of the rail companies are saying "we would rather hold the country's economy hostage to avoid taking a minuscule hit to our profits by providing humane treatment".

It is absurd greed on levels we haven't seen since the gilded age, and I'm sorry, but anyone giving anything but unwavering support for these workers is falling for the media's victim-blaming narrative like an absolute chump.

Take a moment and hear the other side of the story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rv_vG9i8AmQ

Would an economic breakdown hurt the poor, working class, class more than the wealthy? Absolutely. Is it the railworkers demanding basic humanity's fault? No. This should radicalize all of us against the wealthy people holding the country hostage (in the name of greed and refusing basic humane treatment to our fellow human beings), not make you hand-wring and scold the people who are at their breaking point.

Everyone who believes otherwise needs to reflect on where/how they are consuming news stories, because whoever is feeding them this shit is not biased towards your best interests.

Its very strange.

Its a marketplace of local skate shops. Think like Ebay where its a bunch of different individual sellers... but for some reason they hide who the sellers are now (this was a change from when they started). So you might be buying from a local shop in Boston or Texas or whatever, but you won't really know?

Its weird. I don't know the exact details of how sales like this one works for example.

Its fine for getting one rare item or one things that's on sale, but if you are trying to grab a bunch of things all at once, you are going to be paying shipping individually for each one.

Parade world is a market place of sorts. It has a bunch of shops from all over the country participating. The way I understand the idea is that you are purchasing from the closest shop that stocks that product and size. The price difference would mean they are being sourced from 2 different shops that are selling for different amounts.

I used to use their site to find things I was looking for and then in the cart it would say what shop they were coming from, then I would go directly to that shop and order as I believe parade world takes a portion of the sale from the shop for using their platform.

I saw the insta post about data breach protection is that real? in that if you have purchased from there you need to protect yourself with the offered fraud protection.  Never ordering from that place. Seems to have this happen often. 

I work at CCS fro a while in San Luis Obispo.  I think Skate Warehouse is a lot of the same dudes.  Good people at the time but this was years ago.

honestly, who cares.  shit literally happens all the time with online retailers and your money is insured.  it sucks and its an inconvenience, but a class action suit over it is completely ridiculous.  it was an error and its been corrected, no need to try to ruin a decent shop over it.

Knock on wood. Iíve ordered from SW a few times after and before the breach. And at this point Iíve not had an issue that Iím aware of atleast. But I also only ever use guest check out.

Anyone get a random email for a class action against skate warehouse? I found one in my junk-mail, which I assume it's also a scam. I never had issue with SW, but also I only used paypal through them.

Thedrop.com is the same model; I've used them a bunch of times with no issues. Nice thing is it's always free shipping, and most of my orders have come from 303 or pharmacy boardshop. If a site you want to buy from has a minimum purchase amount for free shipping, I check there as they might be selling the same item with no minimum. I did that a bunch with the Primitive sale. On top of that I just use a new email or put a '.' in the email and I get 20% off as well.

You would expect an online retailer to take reasonable protections when handling your PII and they did not. Simple as.
