After eventually persuading my die-hard West Ham supporting other half that our five-year-old girl would look jolly good with an Everton bag at school, I logged on the Everton megastore website and was greeted by the following message all the time, OUT OF STOCK, OUT OF STOCK, OUT OF STOCK. I can only imagine the amount of sales the club must be missing out on.
Wake up Everton, it's nearly Xmas and people want to buy presents, surely you adust your stock at this time of year? But then again maybe not judging by the amount of things OUT OF STOCK.

Why on earth are you sending emails to the Ordnance Survey regarding Everton merchandising? That could be why you never got a reply...
"What does he want a bobble hat for, send him a map!"

you manage to turn a discussion about a man not being able to buy merchandise into a discussion about the stadium!
p.s.I wanted to get a golfbag for my bro but that was out of stock, i feel your pain, it might be because the merchandise is now miles better than it used to be and everton did not foresee the sales?

Today I activated my season ticket for the Oldham game, I spoke to an Australian working in the ticket office who was new and didnt have a clue, so I just hope they are activated because 3 times this season I have had my ticket knocked back at the gate due to problems with it.
The fact that we are all diehards means we put up with all this which wouldnt happen in say the USA, we must lose so much money from the lack of marketing expertise.

On a different, but related note; I?ve had the misfortune to have to deal with JJB Sports (our retail partner) over an order placed with them recently. I have never, ever, found a worse case of customer service than them. It wasn?t an Everton shirt (I was ordering for someone else), but I?ve been waiting for a cancellation and refund for more than a week now, and when I ring them they essentially argue with me! I?ve never come across anything like it before.
I can safely say that I will never use JJB Sports for anything again.

I send them an email complaing about it and was told to wait for one or two weeks, after a month they were still out of stock and I gave up.
I bought some Everton stuff via Ebay, it was cheaper(of course) and the delivery was promptly, needless to say Everton keep losing money due to bad management

Also last year i had an issue with the DVD section of the site and emailed them and got a response that afternoon.
It looks like i?ve been one of the lucky ones though!

Ever been to the supoermarket and found that something has sold out? Ever tried to buy a pair of shoes, only to find they don;t have your size? Shit happens fellas.

Of all the times in the yea it is now thaat Everton should have more than enough stock in. It is typical of the way that the club is and has ben run, for years.
I would suggest ebay or a sports store themselves. Sod that Megastore.... It?s more trouble that it is worth if you ask me boys.

I’m no merchandise-expert, but I’m pretty sure that with the level of support Everton have, the club is losing thousands and thousands of pounds every month. Maybe even a whole lot more. They’re lucky to still have me as a customer.
One positive note on the online megastore: Most times I order, the products they do have in stock arrive in a few days in good qualtity. Except the one time they confused Holland with South Africa, although I guess that was a mistake at the postal services.

Er....can?t seem to see owt about a "discussion about the stadium!
" ...maybe you?re getting a bit confused,eh?

If people are talking in any half-reasonable way about any issue related to Everton then it will be published. Messages we deem to be abusive or are drawn to our attention may get edited or supressed and threads (rarely) may get closed. But people asking for threads to be terminated beacasue they don't like them? Sorry, No!
Because this forum is for open debate, we take a very dim view of anyone coming on here (and especially any of the regulars) trying to stiffle reasonable discussion, and you?re getting closer and closer to the line. Knock it off please.
If you don?t like a particular thread... STOP READING IT!
