Pampered Chef: Not a lot of discontinued (and new) products

    I am thrilled that there aren't a lot of products (in my opinion) being discontinued this season. As much as I look forward to each new season, I usually dread seeing what is being discontinued - there is always a favorite in that list.

    I am sad about the Wovens going - but I think we all saw the writing on the wall when the other 2 were discontinued last year. I figured it was only a matter of time. I am OK with the other items that were discontinued.

    As to the new products - is it my imagination or does it seem like there are fewer this season? Now maybe I can afford to get ALL of the new items!! haha:) Probably not, but this year, group A might be more affordable since there are fewer newer products. I'll have to wait and see what is in Group A and how much.

    It's not your imagination, there are fewer new items this season.
    One thing I noticed though is the price range. There aren't many lower price items, so I'm not sure how that is going to work with the groupings. A lot of them fell in the mid-range category (between $20-$40)

    That will be in our changeover kit. They may be available for order on CC by 7/25 (the first day we can order fall supplies).

    ETA: They will be available to order on 8/3, we will get our changeover kits by 7/31 (consultants).

    I'm glad we're not losing much. And, it seems that there are several new products that will be popular with my customers. I would much rather have a few, well-thought-out additions like we have this time than lots of things that don't seem to make sense to me like has happened a few times. Of course, I'm sure that the things that seemed frivolous to me are must-haves to someone else. :)

    And, of course, I'm THRILLED that the prices of several things are going down. I've already marked my catalog so I can warn the guests at tonight's show, "Don't buy that!" ;)

    Let us not forget the ever present and really cool finger guard that for some very strange reason survived the cut. Speaking of cut, how many have you cut it while trying to use it? I found it way to cumbersome to even bother working with.

    Sometimes things survive the discontinued list because HO still has a ton of them in the warehouse. That might be the case with some of the items we all expected to be gone. That's my theory as to why it took so long for the napkins to be deleted.
