What few clients buy on the Internet and bring in, I think, at least they are using one!

Why should you care?

I go to concerts that allow BYOB, and they sell beer at concession stands..
I go to movie theatres that allow personal snacks brought in, that they sell at concession stands.

Can't expect to enforce a rule that I don't follow

Try to put a stop to it, and you will see your customer base dwindle..because someone (competitor) out there is thinking out of the box.

Deal with it. Its a brave new world my friend. That cat got out of the bag a long, long time ago. Quit believing that the MSRP your distributor gives you means anything-it doesn't.

The MSRP is set by the manufacturers not distributors.

Just remember that they can't buy actual UV Tanning online. (yet)
Give incentives to those that purchase lotion from you.

In other words, give your tanning services away to get them to buy your overpriced lotions. Not a winning strategy. How about buy lotions a reasonable prices so that you can compete with the internet? The prices you see on the internet are the market price (or true value) of the product. That is controlled by the consumer, not the manufacturer.

Just match prices. Or better yet...sell lotions that can't be found online!

For some reason we still sell a lot. Maybe the incentives? I know you don't like giving away a free tan with a lotion purchase, I do.
