Local Celebrity are trying to get rid of the their Obama and McCain t-shirts before the election completely destroys the market for them. They are selling two Barack Obama and two John McCain t-shirts for $10 dollars each and if you use the coupon code CRACKKILLS you can get a further discount of 20% effectively making your t-shirt cost $8 plus shipping. To be nonest I am not all that impressed with these t-shirts although I do like the other tees they have on offer. I am pretty sure though that I will never buy anything from this store as I live in Japan and Local Celebrity charge $50 for overseas shipping. Yes, as hard to be believe as that is, it is true. That would probably make these $8 tees the most expensive tees I ever bought.
These offers are surely limited so if you live in the United States or if you live overseas and have more money than sense don’t waste any time getting over there.
It is to stop people parellel-importing the products which affects all the existing stockists in the region. For your information, there is a Local Celebrity distributor in Japan.
I don’t buy it. The prices alone would stop people from this practice, there is no need to raise the shipping price. If I were a buyer I wouldn’t order from their website either, I would contact them directly to get bulk discounts and hopefully a better shipping rate.
Wrong again. They have exclusive distributor in place, hence the buyer in the region have to buy from the distributor. And the distributor has to make a profit for all the sales and distribution work.
The prices alone would not stop people buying directly from US. If Local Celebrity has an One price policy – same price for the whole world. The price will need to be at around US$35.00.
The bottom line is you don’t like it, don’t buy it.
LOL, I hope for your sake that you are nicer in person.
As you may guess what my day job is.
Honestly I can share your feeling from a consumer perspective. Many US brands are far more expensive outside US – Levis, Abercrombie and Fitch are classic examples.
I guess it is better for LC to charge different prices for the tees in different countries than adding such a ridiculous delivery charge.
Have a nice day.
Unfortunately for non-US residents it’s not just US brands that are cheaper in the US. One of the benefits of a huge market and lots of competition.
I’m not a huge fan of LC anyway so even without the $50 shipping I doubt I would buy from them. Of course it depends on the shirt.
