I spent about an hour looking over various trail cameras they had on their website, trying to make a decision about what to buy. Thought on it overnight. I went back to today and compared and finally made a decision. They had some good deals. Entered them into my cart, but when I went to type in address, Would not let me enter TN for state. Got to looking at info on another page - they will not ship to TN , GA or AL!!!! What crazy kind of company is this???

1. Why not put right up front somewhere so people don't waste their time???

2. Why in the world would you not ship to the very state you are located in???

That's over an hour of my life I'll never get back!

I can arrange for it to ship to some folks in AR or MS, then ship to you....but I'd imagine that would eliminate any savings you have by ordering through them.

It's unfortunate for Tennessee residents. I have purchased some really great deals from Natchez SS over the years, but I have had everything shipped to my address in Texas.

Thanks so much for the offer. The cost of shipping twice would negate the benefit. I appreciate it.

I thought about having it shipped to a friend who would be passing through my way. But, you cannot even pay for it with your credit card if you are from TN!!! In many years of doing business on the internet, and buying $1000's of worth of items, I have never seen a business practice like this. Well, they will not be getting any business from me, guess they don't care.

Natchez is running a great deal - two refurbished Primos Truth 35 cameras for $49.99 each. That is an unheard of low price....but, since I'm from TN, I can't take advantage of it!!! Oh well.

Natchez wholesales to dealers in TN, AL and other states. They will not sell retail in those states and be in direct competition with their dealers. I'm in AL and can't buy from them either but I do understand their system.

No, nothing to do with sales tax. They supply many outdoor stores in TN, AL, and GA. They have non- compete agreements with them that state they won't sell in these states to the public.

Since that is the case, they should make it clear on every page that they will not sell to folks in those states, so we don't waste our time. Businesses are free to carry out their business however they like, but please - let us know so we don't waste our time!

I might try that. In all honesty, I kinda hate to give them the business, but it is a great deal on cameras.

This is common when dealers and distributors are concerned...Retailers won't buy from Wholesalers who sell direct to end users...Retailers buy in large quantity...end users buy in small quantities...The idea is...would you rather hire 20 people to package up that pack of shells or have 4 people to ship a pallet...It's not a personal thing, all biz...I've been on both sides of it...so, you could probably find a retailer in TN and buy it for the same price you would buy it for online...minus shipping

A few weeks ago I found a great deal on 9mm ammo they had on sale. I put it in my basket and went to check out and only realized something was up when I couldn't find tn on the drop down box.... I was told they dealt with Chattanooga shooters supply and I could probably get the same deal if a dealer would order for me but I didn't try since I found some local for about a dollar a box more by the time I figured shipping..

I understand the concept of retail and wholesale. I have been in business at different times myself. But, I have NEVER seen a situation that if you are from a certain state, you cannot buy from that business. That is a ridiculous manner to conduct your business, if you ask me. Most wholesalers will only sell to businesses. Manufacturers will generally charge a higher price than their retailers to protect their retailers business. But, it seems to me Natchez SS is trying have their cake and eat it to. They are try to be a wholesaler and a retailer - and punishing the people who live in TN, AL, and GA so they can have it both ways. Again, it is a free country, they can run their business how they want. I don't have to spend my money there (matter of fact - I can't spend my money there!)The only request I have, is for them to post in big, bold letters at the top of every page that they do not sell to people in AL, TN and GA, instead of in tiny print, buried at the bottom of the page, so I don't waste almost 2 hours of my life!

I've been getting Shotgun News magazine for years. Natchez always runs ads in there, and they have always said NO SALES TO TN right there by their phone number.

Sounds like a lot of guys here have found a 'work-around' though.
Where there's a will, there's a way.

It does say it in the ads but not online until you try to complete the order. I had the same problem. It really should be listed somewhere prominent so you won't waste time looking thru their stuff.

at the very bottom of the home page for Natchez it says "Offers Not Available In TN,GA, or AL", but I wouldn't have noticed if not for this thread.
