Geezus this is pissing me off!
I think the reason why is three fold.
1) Order size - The economy of scale dictates basically getting the largest orders out first. NCIX doesnt have the capasity to match that of its US competitors.
2) Order timing - I dont think NCIX or any other Canadian counterpart was the anywhere near the front of the line when it came to placing their orders.
3) Travel Time - Even though we are on the same continent, it'll take over a week maybe two by land for these to reach Canada. The usually land in California, and take time to reach the distributors which are usually located in Vancouver or Toronto, before they even get sent out to the Retail locations. So even if, say they both landed at the exact same time... products would show up in a Canadian store 1-2 weeks after they show up in an american store, based on the assumption that they both landed at the exact same time.
George, correct me if I'm wrong, but for Canada we're looking at what, Mid June estimates?
