( Click Here To Return to Con-Cor's Main web page )
In 2006 the United States Supreme Court issued a ruling that allows Manufacturers to
establish a "Minimum Advertised Price to the Public" by its Dealers and Re-Sellers.
Con-Cor International is now instituting a "MAP" Policy as
outlined below, and is following the lead of many established companies in our industry that have already done so.
Con-Cor International,Ltd. Map Policy, In force as of March lst 2009.
Brand Names: Con-Cor Trains; Labelle Industries, Con-Cor/Rivarossi Trains, Rt 66 Vehicles
and any other Brand, or sub-brand names as used by Con-Cor International, Ltd.
Covers all Products released within the past 6 months, and all Pre-orders for all new coming products
In order to protect the reputation for superior technology and quality
products, Con-Cor International,Ltd. has adopted a Minimum Advertised Price
Policy . This Minimum Advertised Price Policy will go into effect on March
1, 2009 and remain in effect until further notice by Con-Cor
Con-Cor International,Ltd. will post the MSRP Price
(Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price) on its Web Site (www.con-cor.com) for the United States of America that is associated with
products in the then current product Line. This Price List will include a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) . On some new
products the price maybe listed as "TBA" meaning "To Be Announced" and the final retail price may not be posted until shortly before we start to ship
the product. This is because sometimes the final costs are not established until final production of a product is underway.
This Minimum Advertised Price Policy unilaterally applies to all retailers
and re-sellers of Con-Cor branded products (As listed above) and is expected to benefit all of our valued retailers and re-sellers in that it will allow them to generate appropriate sales margins
to offer value added services to their customers such as product knowledge, service, training, support, inventory or any combination of these items and
more - while protecting the reputation for quality and advanced technology of our various Con-Cor products.
1. A Retailer or Reseller selling Con-Cor Products shall be deemed in violation of this MAP
policy if they advertise, or otherwise place in the public domain, prices for Con-Cor Products on the then-current Product that are below 20% off of
the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price.
2. This MAP policy applies only to advertised prices. Con-Cor does not and
will not impose or enforce any policy with respect to the actual sales price of the product, and the authorized retailer / reseller is free to sell Con-Cor Products
at any price and terms it deems appropriate within their own store or in direct communication with an individual customer via phone or electronic mail, or face to
face with an individual customer at a Train Show, etc.
3. This MAP policy applies to all advertisements of Con-Cor's individual
product items, and includes but is not limited to magazines, websites and other electronic media, broadcast emails, catalogs, flyers, coupons,
newspapers, television and radio. It also includes Banners, print flyers, or signage at Train Shows. This policy does not affect any in-store advertising or in-store actual product pricing.
4. Pricing listed on an Internet site is considered an “advertised price”
and must adhere to the MAP policy. Once the pricing is associated with an intent to purchase (added to a shopping cart or order), the price becomes
the selling price and is not bound by this MAP policy. Statements such as “add to basket to see price”, “we will match any price”. and “call for
price” are acceptable in order for the retailer to establish the selling price when dealing directly with an individual customer.
5. From time to time, Con-Cor International may choose to offer special
promotions on certain products. In such an event, we reserve the right to modify or suspend this MAP policy in whole or in part by notifying all
retailers of the duration and nature of the change. Con-Cor International
further reserves the right to adjust the MAP policy by amending this policy
as posted and by providing 30 day advance notice to all authorized
retailers, by posting such changes on the Con-Cor International web site.
6. Violators of this policy will not be sold Con-Cor-branded products until
their advertised prices comply with this policy. Repeat violators will not
be sold Con-Cor-branded products for a period to be determined based on the
severity of the violations.
This policy does not affect countries other than the United States of
America. It affects only those products released within 6
months of then current date, and any prducts annouced for future delivery,
