There are many hidden costs in running a brick and mortar store. You would have city/state licensing & permits, signage (can be AMAZINGLY costly), local advertising, electricity, wages-taxes-unemployme nt-social security, business insurance, shelving & displays, rent, added phones, and so many other added expenses that it would completely cut out the points, free review items, descriptive reviews, etc. for us. There are adam & eve stores out there everywhere, but honestly--how many places like Edens are there?? None, why...EF has a unique and very appealing business. Also, with a brick and mortar you need to expect some theft and try to recover from that loss of income as well.
I want Edens to continue as it is..amazingly generous, easy to navigate and with great prices. If i feel the need to look at products, I will go to an adult store, check the stuff out and keep a list for ordering it off here.
