Lower-end lotion line

I am trying to figure out what to do about a lower end lotion line. My customers as I'm sure some of everyone's are, are sooo cheap. Last year I had Emerald Bay and couldn't keep it on my shelves. I have had several customers, mostly high school girls, ask for the new Carribbean Gold line. Is it worth putting on my shelves? How does it compare to EB, or CalTan's Get Dark line, or any other cheap line? I carry mostly DS and the Splash line is OK, not crazy about it though. What do you guys think?

I just want to keep them from bringing in the drugstore, or flea market junk, which I have banned but they still try to sneak it in.

Re: Lower-end lotion line

Garbage.

Fiji has a good economical line, so does ProTan (Fiesta Sun), and why not give Private label a try?

Re: Lower-end lotion line

Pro Tans is also good, but they didn't give any rebates on their line last year and I bought TONS of it. At least AG gives money back.

Re: Lower-end lotion line

Cal-tan Karma Sutra Line is selling great even with the cheap skates......I carry the lower line of Fiji as I brought the Fiji line in big this year to carry less DS...
Also I sell the 3oz bottles of Fiesta sun Lipstick,Bikini,Tabu and Flirt sell them like hotcakes at $15- 19.....best part is they are 3oz so after 5 tans they'll need a new bottle unlike the big ones at 9oz where they paid $19..... They love that they get to use a great lotion for less then the bottle but works out cheapier then buying packet after packet.....
