Ladies, this s what happens when everyone runs around trying to get the cheapest option possible (not saying people on here always, but many customers in this industry now do). I'm not at all judging people for wanting to pay less, but you get what you pay for in life. Sure, sometimes products are over priced because a brand name, but many times not. 99% of the market knows nothing of the process of creating a consistent product, and the few that know, only know enough to be dangerous because they think they know more than they do.
We have a senior person at our company who knows the owner of Wagman's very well......and worked with him for years. It was a good company that has been around for a LONG time. You need to support the businesses that provide you with products and services you enjoy, even if they are not the cheapest. I'm a bit disappointed that they are leaving because even though they were a competitor on some levels, they had a lot of loyal customers that didn't shop around for anything else. They provided a solid, consistent product and customer service----something that is not an easy or inexpensive proposition in today's world, especially in the U.S. and in our industry.
As far as their supplier, they had a good one. One that is respected in the industry and supplies to a few other well known companies around the world. That being said, they shouldn't offer up that name. Wagman's worked hard, people did not want to pay for their quality, so why should they then help everyone out by giving it away? Plus, their supplier does not deal with single small orders.......so even if they told you, its not as simple as just ordering a few packs and away you go.
Farewell to a company with a good name that no doubt will be missed. I hope its not a sign of things to come to all the better companies, because no one will be happy with what is left.
