Yes, and one of them just did. Thank you.
Vass has a business model which from the beginning was supposed to work only with B2C, mainly through their own stores in Budapest. Then Vass wrote his book, got in at Isetan, internet came and so on, and Vass fame got bigger and bigger and a lot of retailers where interested to sell their shoes. But since they have set prices to have margins only for B2C, a retailer needs to add their margin which means that they will always be more expensive through someone else than Vass. Vass didn't want to change to a retailer price model, that would mean that they'd up their own prices to the ones retailers has, problem would mainly be that in Hungary the shoes would then be very expensive and they'd have a hard time selling there, so they just keep their own prices and margins as they have been. The price for Vass at retailers is still good though (it's mainly that it's very low when buying directly). And what retailers offer is in many cases RTW of the shelf that aren't available in the same way from Vass at distance, easy online card payment, a very good service, etc. The fact that Vass continue to sell more and more shoes themselves, and at the same time has an increasing number of retailers, seem to point to the fact that this models does work in their case.
