We Are Not Accepting Any New Etailers

by Bob on November 8, 2012

That’s what we were told the other day by an office furniture manufacturer. Not that they weren’t adding any more dealers of any kind, they’re just not adding any more online dealers.

Fastest growing segment of our industry is online, but they don’t want any more…I’m speechless.

3M Avery Deal Off?

by Bob on September 5, 2012

The US Department of Justice threatened to go to court to block 3M’s planned aquisition of Avery, stating that the deal would have resulted in 3M having more than 80% share of the US labels and sticky notes market and that this would reduce competition and result in higher prices for consumers. The DOJ went on to say that 3M agreed to end the deal for Avery in the face of the potential lawsuit. Read the full DOJ release here.

Tuesday night 3M and Avery released a joint statement:

“3M and Avery Dennison have not terminated the purchase agreement governing the transaction. In light of concerns about the transaction raised by the DOJ, the companies have voluntarily withdrawn the notification and report forms filed under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act.”

So not quite as dead as the DOJ statement would lead us to believe? Here’s hoping that the DOJ decides to get out of the way and let this deal proceed.

Because on Tuesday, we didn’t lose a daughter, we gained a son. At sunset, on a beautiful beach on the Big Island of Hawaii our daughter Danielle married Chad Vetterkind. Alana was the prettiest flower girl ever, and Sonny and I didn’t cry…very much.
