More allocations have been announced from GW for US stores
It's unfortunate to hear that allocations are back and even tighter for new Age of Sigmar releases. These allocations, or "caps," can make it difficult for retailers and distributors to get the products they need to meet customer demand. However, it's good to hear that the Kharadron Overlords are safe from allocations this time around.
It's concerning that this is the fifth week in a row with tight allocations, indicating a trend from Games Workshop. Retailers and distributors will need to adjust their ordering strategies and communicate with their customers about availability.
As for what's going on pre-order this week, it would be helpful to know which products are affected and how many of each will be available. This information can help customers plan their purchases and retailers manage their inventory.
- Norgrimm’s Rune Throng: Only one each per store
- Veremord’s Shamblers: Only one each per store
- The Coven of Thyrx: Only one each per store
- Hargax’s Pit-beasts: Only one each per store
- Big Grikk’s Kruleshots: Only one each per store
- Elthwin’s Thorns: Only one each per store
Yes, tight allocations can be frustrating for both consumers and stores. Consumers may have difficulty getting the products they want, and stores may lose potential sales due to limited stock. It's important for Games Workshop to manage their supply and demand properly to ensure that they can meet customer expectations while also maintaining their production and distribution capabilities.
It remains to be seen if these tight allocations will continue to be a trend in the coming weeks or if they will ease up as the year goes on.
