Re: Why are retailers dropping Sloomb?

Sloomb is getting rid of some online retailers in favor of brick and mortar stores. This was not the choice of the retailer.

I don't know anything about multiple retailers not carrying them, but I do know one in particular who was told by Sloomb they would not be a retailer anymore. If you read their FB statement it makes this clear. "Sloomb has decided not to continue with Kissed by the Moon as a retailer."

Why don't they just say that? Sounded much more dramatic!

IDK, but I have not had a good experience ordering straight from Sloomb... I couldn't imagine dealing directly with them. I really feel for the retailers.

I agree. I love sloomb products, but ordering direct causes me headaches. It takes forever. Granted much better than two years ago, but its still awhile. Which is why it stinks she's not carrying it anymore.
