    I have found an odd trend online with some companies, and it is;
    some firework manufacturers like Standard/Black Cat keep details of their regular shopgoods retail ranges online to TRADE CUSTOMERS ONLY which is a bit unfair to us enthusiasts who like our pyro and love to see each years shopgoods offerings to the man in the street and Joe Public. What's wrong about showing what they offer to Joe Public that's available thru regular retail outlets?:help:

    I want to know what the difference is between 'the man in the street' & 'Joe Public'?

    I think some of the men on the street are called Kevin

    Back to topic! What I meant was some firework companies keep details of their retail shopgoods ranges strictly to trade customers only so only they get to know what's new in fireworks and what's available in those manufacturers' shopgoods ranges to the public thru retailers, effectively, what this means is that:-

    (unless you are a trader, there is no chance you can get to see the brand new retail shopgoods ranges that those companies have, unless you have a set up account with that company).

    A few other companies DO give full details and/or video demos of their retail shopgoods ranges online to everybody including you and me, so why can't that be the case in ALL instances by ALL retail shopgoods firework companies? :confused:unflower:

    Probably because their customers are the retailers, not Joe Public or the man on the street.

    But if Brightstar and other companies can show their retail fireworks online to the public as they do, then, why can't all of them do?:confused:orry:

    probably because they have other ways of reaching their customers :)

    You see I was alright with it when I had the impression that it was intended as a selected moment of incisive clarity for our edification. Then I realised that the concept was actually that it was Sir Anthony :sparkler:'s single one and only random thought of any given day!

    And Martin, that's one of the best examples of pot calling the kettle black I've ever seen!!! ;-)
