DIB,

  An independent has the right to sell what they want. They might offer to be a  Dyson  warranty center but the requirements to be one takes away some of our rights as an Independent.  I don't have to sell so many of any one brand to keep selling or repair. 

You said and I quote," It is laughable to think of  the sack- selling and lying thru their teeth, dying  on the vine independent." Jan.25, 2010  Kirby Bagless  Conversion

Where do you get that we are dying on the vine and what makes you think sales are hard to get?  You say we lie thru our teeth.  These remarks are slanderous.  You my friend will hurt the very line you defend by making Independents  a bad guy  . Oreck, has it's own stores but Independents also sell them.  The market out here is changing, hence Dyson going to QVC, and HSN. What happened to the great MAP that everybody got the same price?  When a company goes these routes it is usually to get capital flowing when things get slow or help keep things fluid in slow economic times. Which is it my friend?

Carmine,

You need to start rubbing your beads good and hard...  I’ve never said all independents.  I’ve said many and alike. but not all...and you know it.

Dyson has plenty of dealers, just walk by most dealers and you’ll see a Dyson or two on the showroom floor...Oops sorry, those Dyson vacuums are not indicative of independent being an authorized Dyson dealer, but instead those Dyson’s are nailed to the floor...these dealers ain’t letting them go NO WHERE.

That would depend on the QVC bundle and deal.  In the past, HSN would bundle $80-$120 plus worth of accessories and 4 flex pays and free ship... no brick and mortar can touch this.

Dib:

You just posted these two messages on the same thread WRT the same topic.  What part of " no brick and mortar can touch this" [your words] is not inclusive of ALL indies?  BTW, BEST BUY, tho not an indie, is selling new DC17 dysons for $299.  Beats HSN and QVC dyson bundled/unbundled prices.  This is the point I made to illustrate that your perspective/opinion about retailers' dyson prices and those of the TV sales is wrong....just like you about ALL indies and ALL bagged vacuums.  Sue, sue, sue.  Bash, bash, bash.  How's that working for you and Sir James?

If dyson and you don't belly up to the table and start bargaining nicely with vacuum indies to sell/fix dysons [especially under warranty which is now 5 years], pretty soon you/Sir James and dyson will be begging them to do so.  What will you do when they say no thanks.  Go see QVC and HSN. 

What's that I hear?   Sounds like a dirge ................

After 2 airings (3am and 2pm Eastern) QVC said they sold $13,000 units of the DC25.

What's the issue here? Dyson have always been on QVC UK. Good bargains to be had on there if you can get through on the phone lines.

Only half the story.  How many are returned? This is the dyson ball model with the motor wiring harness that fails within months of use.  Has it been corrected/resolved?
