New poster here but this is a fantastic looking forum and website!
I'm looking for a presentation/interview quote.
The 'gist' is the following: "Sears always paid their bills. We found out that in retail nobody pays their bills on time. They would withhold payment if we didn't ship them more inventory. We didn't know how good we had it with Sears."
I believe it's Bushnell speaking. Basically it's about how hard the consumer space was.
