This past week a manufacturer of premium made-in-Pennsylvania-when-not-in-made-in-China stainless steel cookware ran a two-day online sale of factory seconds.
On Wednesday morning, the second and final day of the sale, I received an email to the effect that many sold-out items had been re-stocked. I didn’t buy anything during the sale but the origin of those re-stocked items has been nagging at me all week.
Did one overnight production run really result in that many scratched and/or dented skillets and sauciers?
Did they send Harry the Hammer down the line to rough up the inventory to order?
If I’d bought something on Day 2, would my chances of getting a Factory First have dramatically improved?
