Pre-Sale Feedback Request

At the beginning of the year, I noted the current state of First and Goal and some goals for 2011 that I had in mind. One of the items was that I’d like to branch into stocking and selling sealed product through my newly formed business.

  2. the obvious keys to this are a competitive price, and a low shipping charge.
    Speaking as someone living in Canada, the U.S. retailers who charge me $5 to ship a box here get my business. Those that want to charge $15-$20 per box do not….
