Who would ever think that a gigantic bulk store could be the underdog in a situation? Believe it.
CostCo has decided to stop carrying Coca-Cola products at their stores. The reason why? Coke refuses to give them a larger discount for their products. Which, given the current economic climate, is pretty important to both companies, seeing as the two would very much like to keep a strong price margin.
Guess you’ll have to find a another way to get 64 cans of Diet Coke all at one time.
So, earlier in the year, creator of Dungeons and Dragons, Gary Gygax passed away. His memory was honored by super-duper geekfest GenCon, who raised over $17,000 in an auction for Gygax’s favorite charity, the Christian Children’s Foundation. Irony was probably not lost on Gygax. What is lost? The money, as the CCF has decided to refuse the money.
Why? Because the money was raised with the sale of D&D merchandise.
You see, because the money came from a gaming convention, it would disrupt their principles. The group is claiming that this is about the “integrity” of its name, which it says it won’t lend to events it had no hand in.
Oh dear. There’s sticking to your principles, and then there’s just … well, quite frankly, there’s myopia.
