BBBY is showing overall machine unit sales increased greater than we expected in all but one region and consumables SPIKED up even higher. Reverse logistics decreased in the period as well, but still higher than we would like to see. The report covers 986 BBBY stores, with only a few dozen not reported due to new store status. The period covered begins December 1 and ended February 1. I know this is a little vague, but it is all I am able to disclose in the forum. I am encouraged with the results I see.
Based on the Bed Bath and Beyond channel check, would you feel comfortable buying the stock at current levels? Have you bought the stock recently? When does the Kohls channel check come out?
I had trouble with my FIZZ unit from day 1. It always has shown a full bottle.
The fizziness meter is not very accurate. One short injection might read high fizziness and 2 long ones might read low.
I just ignore it. I suspect that others might return the unit over this. I suspect that FIZZ might be a return problem---which the shorts will read as---ITS A FAD--LOOK the returns have increased.....
The machines do operate without the battery. However, the reading on how much CO2 is left in the canister and is in the soda being made can display inaccurately because of the low battery.
I posted Santa Cruz with a 5.3% return Rate and another tex location with 1.5% return rate. The CEO said the return rate was 3%... That was before the Fizz so maybe it bumped up with that model. IMO. Folks get frustrated and don't want to replace a small battery... imo
This is the problem I had. Luckily, I guess, the company provides an extra battery with a note saying there may be problem with battery life. No big problem the battery was easy to change and BBB willingly gave me another battery.
