Is CWL de-emphasizing the Super Compressor?

Post by GreenHighlander »

Looks like CW is shifting the focus back to the C60 Sapphire over the Super Compressor. It has replaced the CS in the feature slot on the website. Actually the Super Compressor is now below the Tridents as well. The Sapphire was also highlighted in this week’s promotional email. I wonder if this is indicative of the Super Compressor selling below expectations?

I would guess it is probably the other way around. You start de-emphasizing things that are selling well. Why waste advertising space on things that sell themselves. I would guess the Sapphire was hurt by all the new releases and they want to get the focus back on it.

No.

Its good retail practice to rotate the items in your shop window.

Simples. :eek:

Me too! If it's discounted a lot I'll even put up with the wonky wording.
Two CWs and too many others to list!
And loads of clocks.
And bicycles.

It just struck me as odd since the SC was just released and to my understanding, the focus of the recent tv campaign.

They may be holding back until the next batch arrive with properly aligned wording....
