  1. Quick question. Do you have any idea how many bottles of sd1 and hd2 will be available for sale?

    Calm down big guy, I never stated they created the scare. I think NP is about the most stand up company there is, but still a business. No, I do not fault them for making a buck. Scare was there, blew out their inventory, then got more, they went on the information they were given, and personally hope they did come out on top.

  3. Liquidating stocks is not even a second-best strategy for making profits. At best, it releases tied-up (working) capital, and cuts inventory (operational) risks.

    here is my view on this...when the intial scare sale came about...i bit,

    i spent $200 on supps i did not need in the near future,and now they are coming back in stock..well i feel kinda cheated...and yes maybe they sold
    the ph's at cost...but im sure many ppl including myself did not only buy ph's at clearance price...i spent $100 on phs and $100 on full price supps...just like supermarket fliers...they attract u with specials and then u go there and u load up your carriage
    This may be true, but their "fliers" are good deals and prices that you don't see anywhere else.

    D,


    How many times do I comment on a situation like this? Hardly ever...the reason being is if I don't know, I don't really say much. I can assure you, this situation is not one retailers want to be in and this scare is not fabricated and not helpful in any way in terms of profit/sales. The stuff that was seized at other retailer locations has not been reordered nor can it be. There are a lot of items that have been cut off from the distribution end. The problem was ascertaining what was being targeted and the fear that your entire stock was going to be taken. Its their world, they make the rules and not many are going to get in the way. All of a sudden the eyes take focus on the retail aspect whereas before, it was solely on the manufacturer end.

    The last thing you want is to be in their crosshairs. Now whether you agree with that is another issue...I happen to think its long overdue.

    This had nothing to do with increasing sales.

NP had a great strategy, move what they have... and now look at this thread, order more when they were done with hormonals. Selling off quantity makes the money, not gouging for every penny. Seriously..... now you also have repeat customers, pretty damn smart tactic if you ask me.

  9. I can assure you that items such as Phera clones and/or Tren related items will NOT be returning for various (legal) reasons. Nutra is the best damn E-Merchant, period.

    Just like the great Labor Day sale that never was. How many have stayed up till midnight in hopes not to miss any deals and for what. Most of the stuff is still the same price today and the product selection and prices were not anything to get excited about. I am not saying that the sale wasn't there but with all the marketing and hype one would expect a lot more. And do some of you really believe that they sold prohormones at cost and not made any profit on it? Come on

  15. Of course they lied. And the sale? Hell, they tricked everyone into buying things at just "ok" prices...And the free shipping they actually paid for with all those customers? Hell, that's nothing....Its only $5-7 per order..multiplied by tens of thousands..thats chump change. 50,60,70k in shipping fees? Hell, thats petty cash. I agree, NP fooled us all. And getting all those items out and paying for overtime? That nothing..I have that laying around in between my couch cushions.

    I mean seriously, they should have had everything at 50% off. Only then would it be legitimate. Money grubbers....all of them. They are like everyone else..their marketing just lies and they force us to buy everything at average prices. They think we are just big idiots and we buy right into it! Well, no more! I'm paying full price from now on! I'm not falling for this sale marketing ever again!

  17. The conspiracy runs so deep, it effects other retailers as well.

  19. just bring me the 6-bromo, I'll take all since everybody else is whining

    common guys, it's a bit of give and take also

    nutra work their ass to bring decent prices on bulk powders, so they have to compensate somewhere for their efforts

    well I would say maybe nutra should improve on their express local shipping prices, which can get as expensive as international shipping

    fedex ground takes almost 8 days on average to reach me on the west coast

    chill guys

  20. so when is the SD-1 going to be back in?

  21. Let's hope protodrol is coming to the Planet.

  22. yea due we know when sd-1 is going to be in stock

    Let me do some speculation. First, they (NutraPlanet) could have entered into business commitments to buy a specified quantity of selected products at some point in time. Some of these products may have been shipped to NutraPlanet with a delay, and are now on offer. Once these are sold out, stocks may not be replenished. Second, NutraPlanet's original move may have been to reduce operational risk exposure by liquidating inventory (to avoid BB.com's experience). Once this first round of risk management was accomplished, they could do one or two selective offers at lower quantity orders, suggesting an overall reduction in risk exposure, before finally folding up the product segment, once clearer legislative and actionable signals could be obtained.
