Tackle Bargains ? Online Purchases
I have increasingly noticed that online purchasing of fishing tackle has turned into somewhat of a bargain. With more tackle shops trading online the price of tackle is going down, and going even lower in tackle bargain sections of websites. When compared to tackle shops on the high street, it is possible to see there is an obvious price difference. Online shops are much cheaper then tackle shops along the high street. Being the smart headed consumers that you are (hence the reason why you are reading this) I am sure you will warm to shopping online whist reading my article. I remember when I first began to fish and the only tackle bargains I could buy were the ones covered in dust, in the corner of my local fishing tackle shop. The local fishing shops only reduced fishing tackle to bargains once they became so old no one would want to buy them anymore. The fishing shops would overcharge un-experienced fishermen who had no clue about what tackle was good to use and what price they should pay for them. These small shops were not afraid of cheating the customer as they knew they were the only tackle shop in the high street so tackle bargains were very rare. With the internet however, this is a thing of the past. The internet has created a consumer revolution, where items for sale can be bought online, at a much cheaper rate then on the high street. The same has happened in the fishing industry. By setting up a shop online you are, in fact, opening up your shops to the world. People can purchase yours good from the other side of the world, and this has done wonders in regards to providing us with tackle bargains.With more customers purchasing tackle the costs of tackle lower, whilst high street tackle shop prices remain the same. If one looks on the even bigger scale, the online tackle shops purchase their stock from online wholesale tackle shops. This therefore means that the price of tackle is bought much less from the wholesaler, which means prices will be lower for online customers. This knock on effect is very good for us tackle bargain hunters, who can now purchase tackle at a much cheaper rate then we are used to paying.As mentioned above, because these online tackle stores have a bigger customer client base, their variation in stock needs to increase. This therefore creates another advantage against the high street store, which is limited to the amount of stock it can provide in its store. Online shops can advertise an unlimited amount of stock as the stock is stored and does not need to be displayed etc. It can be advertised online through pictures and videos and then posted to the customer, quickly and efficiently.Here are just a few key reasons why I believe it is imperative to purchase online in order for you to get the best bargain tackles money can buy.
