I received an email from one of our customers who recently purchased an Infinity IT-8500 massage chair. He was kind enough to put together a brief, 1-minute video showing the arrival, unpacking, and assembly of the chair when it came to his home. Great job! I loved the background music. This video is so much better than the ones I put out! Thanks, Tim. Check it out here…
Discontinued and New Models
Also, I received word this last week that Luraco will be discontinuing the iRobotics i6SL model from their product list. It will be discontinued in December and will sell out existing stock. In the first quarter of the year, they have also announced a new model, the iRobotics 6 Plus, which will have a new look and feature-set. As soon as I get any images or information on this chair, you can bet I will share it with you first!
Speaking of discontinued models, Osaki has announced that they are discontinuing the Marquis and Intelligent models. Not huge sellers, I totally understand why this is the case. But, in their place, we have added the new Osaki OS-4D Pro JP Premium and the new Apex Lotus chairs. The JP is a Japanese-made chair that comes from the folks at Fujiiryoki, which is the oldest massage chair company in the world!
Massage Chair Relief California Showroom Update
Although I signed the lease about a month ago, we have not been able to proceed past the liability insurance. The property owner has some very particular requirements for the policy that not every insurance company can provide. I think we might finally have it done. I will be flying to SoCal on Thursday to submit the business license application packet to Cerritos City and hopefully will have the key handed over to our contractors at that time too.
I have decided on some of the models we will have in the showroom in California. Here is what we know we will be carrying for sure at this juncture:
- Inada DreamWave
- Inada Yume
- Inada Flex 3S
- Luraco iRobotics 7
- Panasonic MA73
- Ogawa Active
- Infinity IT-8500
- Infinity Iyashi
- Infinity IT-9800
- Apex Ultra
- Titan Alpine
- ZeroG 4.0
We will decide on the remainder within the next few weeks and let you know what else we will have. We will also be carrying a line of handheld and foot massagers in this showroom, which is something we’ve not done with our Utah store. We are shooting for an opening date of mid October. Stay tuned for more updates!
