AmuseStar Vending Co Posted January 20, 2009 Share Posted January 20, 2009 I was in Sams Club today ordering/picking up some products for my route. I decided while I was waiting for them to find my lost order, I decided to go back and look at the price hikes! What a shock. Peanut M&M and Regular M&M, $9.14 a bag (Marked up 4 dollars). Cashews $12.89 a tin (Marked up 5 dollars). Reece's Pieces $7.45 a bag (Marked up 2 dollars). Now, sure I understand that. They can not help the suppliers pricing. But what came next sent me into a rage in the middle of a sams club isle. NO GUMBALLS in the bulk vending section. Oh, but in its place: GUMBALL MACHINES. Yes folks, they had a huge pallet of "Start Up Kits" which include a box of 850 gum, a machine, and a stand. Conveniently priced at $169. On the box? Why it says something to the affect of: "Own your own gumball machines in your own business, and make extra income". "Empty just one globe of free product, and it pays for itself". Blah, Blah, Blah. So now they are not only jacking up prices, selling unusable gum, and shrinking bag size, but they are trying to sell businesses their own machines and hinting them to boot us out! I am just to my limit with them. I called concord to order direct today, but they did not answer. Sorry, I am off my box now. Kyle Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
