  • We sell TCPI bulbs and are an active buyer of TCP product (for our inventory) through WalMart (retail shelves). Over the past (2) months, the WalMart(s) throughout Central Illinois (likely throughout the US) have moved their Great Value branded TCP product to lower shelf space and have begun a concerted effort to push their WalMart branded Halogen bulbs (bringing in hundreds of packages and placing on the shelf and promoting on isle displays. All of TCPI's CFL offerings (for example) are firmly entrenched on the very bottom shelf while LED have been moved to make way for Walmart's Halogen push.

    TCP does not manufacture the Halogen bulb. Suspect the CEO will address in upcoming CC knowing that over coming quarter sales will be almost certain to be impacted.

    Additionally, believe Home Depot has phased out (or is phasing out) their sales of EcoSmart BR30 manufactured by TCP. Home Depot does continue to carry the cheaper FEIT BR30 however.
