As Jeremy Lin’s play has cooled, and the Knicks are again in danger of missing the NBA playoffs, Linsanity has done the same.
A few New York-area retail stores have gotten the hint, and have now deeply discounted Jeremy Lin merchandise in a last-ditch effort to make a few more bucks off of it before it becomes worth next to nothing.
This has to be a nightmare from a business perspective for businesses to both try and capitalize off of these quick phenomenons, figure out when/if they are going to dissipate or taper off, and accordingly, know how much merchandise to keep on shelves or get rid of when the time is right.
It’s all a matter of timing, I suppose, and the New York area drug store you see in the picture has decided to pull the trigger and discount a few Lin bumper stickers at 90%.
Can’t blame em I guess.
Anyone would rather be on the front side of the wave in these types of situations than on the backside.
Linsanity meet Timsanity.
And the page turns.
