McClelland Bulk 17% Off At P&Cs

Post by Goose55 » Thu Sep 21, 2017 8:21 pm

McClelland Bulk 17% Off At P&Cs. But 2015 Virginia-Perique Flake is STILL back-ordered. All other places have it. Why would they not keep in stock such a favorite bulk? :confused:

I saw that and wondered why 17?
As thus we sat in darkness
Each one busy with his prayers,
"We are lost!" the captain shouted,
As he staggered down the stairs.

Apparently according to numerology, the number 17 is responsible for, insight, responsibility, self-discipline, strength, compassion, spiritual consciousness, and wisdom, a desire for peace and love for all of humanity. So it's probably a subtle astrolo-numerologist plea for social justice amid the oppression that the disenfranchised face in today's econo-capitalist, intraimperialist, fascist society.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

Yeah, and I was going to order and smoke 5100 in celebration of insight, responsibility, yadda, yadda. . .
But it's backordered.

Why in the name of,whatever, would you announce a sale on something (5100 is specifically mentioned in the email announcement) and not have it in stock?

Clearly another sign of the chaos proving the world will end on Saturday.

This right here. I have got emails all September on their buy two tins of Cult get the third tin free. Three tins for $18.50 is a great deal. The problem is out of the seven tins that Cult sells they only have three available. The other four say out of stock and you are unable to select them.

Here is the really big problem. They are marked at $6.75ea but when you select three it jumps to $9.25ea. This is a problem because you are able to select two for a total of $13.50. So your not really getting one tin free. You are only getting $1.75 off the entire order.

To announce such a sale and going into it with two of McClelland's best selling bulks (2015 & 5100) back-ordered, is stupid. Why would they do that?

You know what? I think they are going belly up, and selling off inventory. The 2015 Virginia- Perique Flake has been back ordered for months.

Someday, we will look back upon 2017 and remember it as a sort of safe-space kind of year!

The last time I saw No. 2015 in stock was in 2015. Strange happenings with the backordered McClelland bulks.

Thanks.

I'm baffled, why are the best McClelland bulks perpetual out of stock at P&C (especially when P&C has an entire sale devoted to them).

I bet it's because P&C is in dispute with McClelland. P&C likely won't buy and wants a lower wholesale price and McClelland is holding out, sending more to 4Noggins and Smoking Pipes. If this is true, P&C is the only loser in that situation.

More and more of the McClelland tins are now showing back order as well.
