I just dumped a bunch of inventory. It isn't inventory that I could really sell anyways since it is 2019 dated and 2020 stuff will be out shortly (at least wholesale it will be). I'll let some sucker that loves to buy Amazon liquidation crap to resell on Amazon purchase all of it.  :h0035

I've been doing the same thing.
I paid for some to be returned to me.
I paid to have Amazon dispose of them for me.

I am working on more inventory control with respect to amounts. I finally got the last of the stuff cleaned out here and after tallying up the cost, I almost cried. Price softness from established competition as well as a bunch of 1st-year R/A players really hurt. Hurt my top line, hurt my bottom line but significantly helped Amazon's coffers.

My current order for this year took a lot of this into account. At this point, I would rather lose sales to being out of stock on a couple of items than be stuck with a lot of inventory that I eventually have to dump.

One of my sales reps knows one of the main competitors I have and told me they are not placing an order this year. I guess they got burned worse than me.

That's the way I feel about it also.
I'll send in what I know will sell and let the others who penny price their items, lose money.
Gravy Days on Amazon are gone.

This last year batch of new sellers are Pffffft.

Not placing an order this year?
Yep.
I can understand that.

Still would like to and will be pulling out a good portion from the warehouse.
