AMSOIL 12+ Store Policy Clarification

moveUpToAmsoil

The 12+ Store Policy was revised to allow exceptions to be considered on an individual basis. In response, many Dealers contacted us seeking clarification of the amendment. The revised policy appears below with the change highlighted in red.

Businesses that own more than 12 retail outlets may only register individual outlets as separate retail accounts. Each outlet/account must have the authority to establish an account and place individual orders for its own store. Invoices, co-op advertising credit and other documents will be sent to the individual account.

Individual outlets/accounts may not use centralized distribution, group shipments, transfer inventory between outlets or combine co-op advertising credits. An AMSOIL Dealer may register and/or sell to a maximum of 24 individual retail outlets that are owned by the same business. Exceptions to this will be considered for certain retail segments that are not in direct conflict with the best interests of the Dealer opportunity. Dealers must work in conjunction with the Dealer Sales Department in order for businesses to be considered for an exception. AMSOIL reserves the right to accept or reject account applications and to terminate accounts that do not meet account qualifications or are considered not in the best interest of AMSOIL INC. and the Dealer opportunity.

Businesses considered for an exception include retail and commercial installers, hardware stores, convenience stores and industrial suppliers whose business models are flexible enough to allow them to work with a Dealer and AMSOIL to achieve a mutually beneficial arrangement. Auto parts stores (including those with service bays, e.g., O’Reilly Auto Parts, AutoZone, Pep Boys), mass merchandisers (e.g., Walmart, Sears, Target) and discount stores (e.g., Sam’s Club, Costco, Home Depot) will not be considered for an exception.

The following characterizations will help you identify businesses that are potential exceptions:

  • Retail and commercial installers allocate more than 70 percent of their building to installation and repairs. They may sell a few packaged goods, but the majority of their business and floor space is for installation services. Examples of businesses in this retail segment include:
    • Midas, Firestone, Brakes Plus, Pomp’s Tire, Lube Stop, All Tune and Lube, Tilden Car Care, Boss Shops, Blaine Brothers, Speedco, Love’s Travel Stop
  • Hardware stores offer a high degree of service, convenience and wide variety of traditional hardware, as well as many other household and garage-related items. They typically rely on higher profit margins, but do run promotions. Examples of businesses in this retail segment include:
    • ACE Hardware, Orchard Supply Hardware, Hardware Hank, Do It Best Hardware
  • Convenience stores charge for having a variety of convenience items available in one location, often close to your home or work. They rely on higher prices to stay in business and don’t discount automotive products. Examples of businesses in this retail segment include:
    • Kwik Trip, Gas-N-Go, Easy Mart,  Kroger, Sunoco, Holiday, 7-Eleven, Casey’s General Store
  • Industrial Suppliers provide single-source contracts to commercial businesses for maintenance, repair and operation (MRO) items. They carry a variety of items and don’t discount or advertise like traditional retail, though some have small public “stores” inside their offices. They are a convenience business and rely on higher prices to cover the expense of warehousing small quantities of many different products and the cost of shipping to their customers. Examples of businesses in this retail segment include:
    • Graybar, Airgas, Motion Industries, Kaman Technologies, Applied Industrial Technologies

Remember, retail accounts that allocate the majority of their floor space to selling retail products and those that buy in large quantities to receive discounts and sell at discounted prices will not be considered an exception.

AMSOIL Outboard 100:1 Pre-Mix Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil Color Change

ATP_2Cycle

In our ongoing process to improve product quality, we’ve adjusted the formulation of Outboard 100:1 Pre-Mix Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil, which has resulted in a change in color from green to blue. The oil continues to provide outstanding performance at 100:1 mix ratios in outboard motors. Pricing remains unchanged at $4.45 for an eight oz bottle.. The new formulation will become available over the next 30 days as current inventory is depleted.

For further information about the #1 Two-Stroke Oil on the market go to http://www.amsoil.com or http://www.The1stSynteticoil.com.  I have used the 100:1 mix ratio for over 20 years and have never had a break down or an engine seize in a weed eater, chain saw, pole chain saw, edger or anything else Two-Cycle.  Regardless of that manufacturers tell people, you DO NOT need 32:1 or 50:1 mix ratio.  Eight ounces of AMSOIL’s Saber Oil to Six Gallons of fuel equals a 100:1 ratio. Or 1.3 ounces to one gallon of fuel equals 100:1 ratio.  With AMSOIL’s Saber Oil you will see NO Smoke, NO Plug fouling and NO Carbon Buildup on the piston or exhaust port.

Call 1-800-777-7094 should you desire to purchase this product.  Give the operator ZO 9792 as the person you have corresponded with.
