I noticed last month both of our competitors were outselling us nearly 10:1 because of the price difference. By the end of June both sold out of their stock . We were then left as the only source for these items and we've nearly sold out at $120/ea. I've now become aware of a couple of other products doing the exact same thing.
As long as you can afford to keep your money tied up in stock for that much longer you are laughing.
I worked for a company that took that approach in times of shortage and did superbly. Then more manufacturing came on stream so that the discounters were no longer regularly out of stock and the business went under. Luckily for me I saw it coming and jumped before I was pushed.
