Hansgrohe Axor to Join Brizo in Not Selling on the Internet

Faucet makers Brizo and Hansgrohe Axor have ceased online retail sales. Internet sales have been the one bright spot in an otherwise slow economy. Despite a recession internet retail sales are expected to rise 10% over last year.

The manufactures may be feeling pressure from dying brick and mortar showrooms who are suffering at the hands of the internet retailers. However, the trend is towards the internet and fighting the trend is usually not a good business decision.

The internet party continues for the brands that embrace online retailing. Total Online retail sales are expected to be 319 Billion by 2013 according to emarketer.com
