Relatively small, but tactical haul from this year's show. Not pictured, 5 litres of AutoSmart G101. I think we all know what that looks like

I spent about a hundred quid which could easily have been double that had more retailers bothered to price their product's.

Just a few Gyeon pieces, a Colourlock brush and a couple of Klin glass cloths for me. I was far too busy.

That's some money spent lol.

I found it difficult this year as most stalls didn't see the need to price their product's and then we're too busy to be asked 'how much' every 2 minutes.

I didn't go last year and was looking forward to it but was very disappointed.

I don't think I will be going again.

My haul was:

Bouncers Done and Dusted (1 litre)
Bouncers HSi02
Infinity Wax citrus cleaner
Infinity Wax fallout remover
Scangrip pen torch
Gtechnic Panel Wipe
3x Gtechnic spray bottles
Wowos Fabric cleaner
Wowos fabric Sealant
1 litre of Sonax 6-4 compound

Like others, could have spent double had I not been disciplined!!

I like to think of it as money saved over RRP rather than money spent...

It's a tricky thing to do and let me explain why.

I'm sure all traders are the same, but we go with a planned discount in mind but until you get there and have a snoop what the others are doing it's hard to settle on anything. Obviously we want to be competitive on the day in order to offer the visitors the best deal and also to not go home with a full van.

These prices could shift on the morning of the show and to try and get round pricing hundreds of products in a short space of time is difficult.

However, we love having feedback from the shows and I know we will and i'm sure the others guys will act on it and improve, hopefully tempting you to attend a future Waxstock!

Thanks for your reply. Most of the other retailers don't bother (auto finesse).

I am sure you do want to be competitive which is natural. I am a Retailer myself so I can understand that.

However if you look at one of your competitors such as Autobrite they had every item priced and at an obviously predetermined discount.

They were by far the busiest stall.

By not pricing items you will never attract the impulse purchase.
