    It won't be too long until sales tax will be charged on most internet sales. South Dakota made a law that required collection of sales tax on internet orders. It went to the Supreme Court. This article gives a pretty good explanation of the ruling.

    I don't like that their customer list was either sold or taken. I'm getting emails from a former employee that is starting their own store. That is good, but my information being out there without my authorization is not.

    I have nothing against Mann Lake but I try to give Dadant the biggest share of my business. They are the only ones left standing out of the big operations that are still family owned and operated. The only one that benefits from one company buying the others is the company doing the buying. Less competition is not good for beekeepers.

    I've attempted many times to buy from Dadant....but I'm also a frugal shopper...if I can get the same thing for less....then that's what I'm going to do.

    I agree. Dadant acts like they could care less about my business on large orders so if they go by the wayside nothing lost here. Dadant does not keep up with the times . People are searching multiple sites and checking prices in this volatile market. Mann Lake has my business til they start screwing up . Dadant and Kelley are the Sears and J.C. Penney of beekeeping and Mann Lake is the Amazon.

    Not quite. Kelley is now owned by Mann Lake.

    Yes I knew that . Why do you think they got bought out? They didn’t keep up with their customer base . Thats why! Brushy the most highly overpriced same thing .. If you don’t keep up with your customer base and offer free shipping you will not make it in this business.
