Well, our frustrations continue with regards to stock issues and back-orders. There is a little light however. Inada emailed me yesterday and said that the Dark Brown Inada Sogno Dreamwave Plus massage chair is in stock in good supply. The black leather is also available, but in very limited supply. Here is what we can expect with the rest of the Inada Sogno colors:
– HCP-10001A(HD) Sogno Dreamwave Slate – Orders placed now will be released by May 9th.
– HCP-10001A(CH) Sogno DreamWave Chocolate – Orders placed now will be released by May 9th .
– HCP-10001A(CW) Sogno DreamWave Creme – Orders placed now will be released by May 2nd.
– HCP-10001A(RD) Sogno Dreamwave Red – Orders placed now will be released by May 2nd.
Anyone interested in ordering any of these back-ordered chairs, order ASAP so that you can get whatever is available. If you wait until the chairs come in to order, you will probably not get one as those models will have already been spoken for.
Now, regarding the Panasonic 30007 massage chair. Very frustrating. We have had some orders back-ordered for almost a month, with the promise that the stock would be in “next week.” Well, today I learned that only 12 of the 35 they were expecting are coming in. I have a number of orders, but I will only get 1 chair to give to the first order. VERY FRUSTRATING! Panasonic has never been great with inventory management, to be quite frank. It is always a crapshoot. So, I should just tell you that if you want a Panasonic 30007, order it now…but expect to receive it next month. They will be spoken for very quickly.
By the way, all other chairs should be in stock, according to my suppliers (“should” being the emphasis!).
A new chair from Panasonic, by the way. I will give you the scoop in my next blog entry.
