Distress Markers

February 24th, 2012

Hello Bloggers,

It has been 3 weeks since we returned from CHA and the response to our new products has been very positive – thank you!   It goes without saying that the demand for the new Distress Markers has been overwhelming and as a result we are currently out of stock.  Rest assured that we have ramped up production and are working hard to replenish our stock.  We expect to start shipping again to Retailers on or around March 15th.  Our policy is to ship to customers on a first come, first served basis.  Retailers who have recently placed orders for the markers need not worry as we expect to receive new Distress Marker inventory approximately every 10 business days to satisfy the current demand.

We apologize for the delays and appreciate your patience.  Thank you for your continued support for Ranger.

 The Ranger Team

Here is a look at some of the goings on…
