dCS is starting to go to online sales

I saw this bit of news today FYI

dCS shook up their North American distributor. They’re trying to find a way to succeed in a changing market. Locally the dealer that sells dCS does a great job with what is an expensive product and a specific market. They might be disappointed if the approach expanded. I don’t see direct sales in North America but who knows.

It was interesting to me that another top tier manufacturer has gone to (at least partial) online sales. A sign of the times for sure.
I have collected 3 very nice systems without ever entering a set of B&M doors.

Yet some new stores are opening. 3mA of Houston is building out a superstore 5 minutes from the strip in Vegas.

I think that population demographics would drive where B&M stores would be viable. If the population is right and the overhead isn’t too expensive a store should be able to survive. Especially if it is a high markup high end dealer / distributor.

The real high end dealers where I live, have had a banner 3 years. Covid was a perfect storm of demand for cooped up people with money they couldn’t spend on travelling and vacations.
