Retail Response to Down Economy: The Survivors & the Deer

Post Time-Date 03-02-2009 | Author by John | Category Category Security Products | 5 Comments »
I have a unique perspective on the retail hardware domain and have observed some notable trends in response to this down econmy. Specifically, I have witnessed 2 kinds of hardware retailers: the "Survivors" and the "Deer". I purport this: First and foremost, in this economy the "Survivors" (and not the "Deer") will thrive. Why? Because they will find what works. In my humble opinion, in this economy people (American consumers) are willing to pay for “Peace of Mind” even when money is short. Why? Because they want to safeguard what they still have... what they can't afford to lose.

The Lucky One

Post Time-Date 10-13-2008 | Author by John | Category Category Consumer Information | 5 Comments »
I am fortunate enough to be a partner in Epoch Design where we have created the Mail Boss security locking mailbox. We started out designing and producing furniture, and we still do. Certainly, it is fulfilling to watch our ideas come to life and sometimes become desirable products for the masses. For many years, this drove me and inspired me, especially when we had customers contact us appreciative of the quality of our products. But there was always something missing, and we all felt it. From my perspective, it is very difficult to really help people out, rather, impact their lives by providing them with quality furniture that fulfills a need or desire in their lives.

Discovery Channel's duo Johnston and Douglas miss the mailbox

In the popular Discovery Channel show “It Takes A Thief,” duo Matt Johnston and Jon Douglas display their keen aptitude for breaking into seemingly safe and secure residential homes, often surprising the homeowners with their ingenious methods. It would seem that there is no doubt they are indeed experts at this. I contend they work entirely too hard for what they get. What do I mean by this?...
