Helen Gilbert, managing editor of Red Letter Press, reports that her company recently lost $1900 worth of books when a Canadian distributor destroyed the stock that they were holding. According to Gilbert, the company took over the Red Letter Press inventory in 2003 from another Canadian distributor they absorbed.
“To our shock, we discovered early this year that Disticor had decided to no longer carry books. Although they claim to have notified publishers that they should make arrangements to have their books returned, we never received any notice,” said Gilbert. “So they destroyed books worth $1900 at the price they would have paid us for sales.”
Gilbert would like to hear from anyone else is in this situation and what steps that they have taken. She has contacted the Better Business Bureau but said the case was closed when the distributor failed to respond.
