Montblanc Forbids Web Sales

from the buy-your-pens-elsewhere dept

Another one for the “stupidity” topic (new topics will show up one of these days, I promise): the super fancy pen company, Montblanc, has forbidden online sales of their product. Apparently they think it will cheapen their brand. They do make some arguments that border on reasonable in their explanation, but I think an outright ban is pretty extreme and probably misses the point.
