“This new agreement with ACD is really going to bolster our relationships with our retailers, particularly in the hobby game market. We are very excited that this will greatly improve our direct interaction and communication with all of our customers, which is a vital mission at Playroom.”
Bunch of crap! "Bolster our relationships with our retailers . . ", yeah right! Most retailers go through one distributor. Since free shipping and other perks are based on volume purchases, having to split up purchasing through two different distributors undermines the retailers. The only people that this MIGHT benefit are Playroom and possibly ACD. Retailers, and as a result, customers will get screwed. I hope this kind of deal comes back to bite Playroom in the ass. These kinds of exclusive distribution deals just don't seem to help anyone.
