Jumbo claims Sunshine Snacks blocked him from selling nuts in the Oval

Postby abducted » September 7th, 2019, 5:38 pm

Nuts man Jumbo claims Sunshine Snacks has blocked nuts men from selling in the Oval because Sunshine sponsored CPL, does Sunshine really feel threatened by nuts men?

I dunno why corporations can't use their brains and work with the community nah.
At the end of the day, everything is the grimy $$$ in their hand.
This man seems to be an integral part of the Oval culture for decades!

Not defending the 1% eh, but if the arrangement was exclusive rights to peddle their merchandise in exchange for sponsorship money Jumbo should direct his ire at the CPL organizers not Sunshine Snacks...:|

Y'all know even the Snocone man in UWI hadda pay premium rate to sell in there eh.

I wonder if Mr Nutsman was offered a "license" to sell and he declined when he heard the cost?
I mean he's basically a fixture, so I doh see them bussing his throat jusso.

Jumbo selling nuts since 1971 and hasn't grown his brand and business to the level where he could compete with ABL, and somehow that's ABL's fault? Could Jumbo sponsor the CPL? How many of you would invest hundreds of thousands in an event and tell a competitor to fall in cause it go look good? Look good to who? A handful of nostalgic people on social media who most likely not going and look for Jumbo when they feeling for nuts but he's 30 mins away, this "support" for de small man not going past this evening, one setta ole talk because the internet is "free"

I wanted to say this from the beginning , but you know how people does get offended as you side with the rich against the poor. It's the same problem in POS. Store owneers paying rent ,mortgages , ttec bill, wasa bull , insurance , staff and taxes but a man could come set up on the sidewalk and block his showcase and sell the same goods ,running him competition, and vex when the businessman complain or the police move him.

This is normal for all international tournaments and that’s what CPL is. You think in FIFA World Cup there isn’t an official soft drink, beer, sports drink etc ? Once you’re a sponsor that’s the benefit. He could cry and moan but that’s the way business works. Even so there is room for him, I’m sure right outside the Oval he’s still selling and without CPL or sponsors there would’ve been no event to attract a crowd for him to sell to.

Hahahaha....

All Jumbo have to do is wear a lil sunshine snacks tee shirt and sell their nuts and humble he self.

But NO, he feel he around long time and thinks its his right to plant himself in any event he feels like?

He could be how “iconic” and all this “cultural” sheit but its the ignorance, attitude and complacency that gets people no where.

Thats why i said jumbo should sell his nuts outside the venue.

Some people are just happy plying their trade and making money for them to be happy. These people like to remain on level that is comfortable and don't see the need to expand of grow. They happy where they are.

Other folks grow their brand to make as much money as possible, and all good for them.

I know lots of small folk making money and they just don't want to expand, they say there is no need for that. Some just do it as a side income.

fresh nuts is always better than plastic nuts from sunshine.

It the same with employment, some folk don't want promotions or extra responsibility. They just happy doing whatever job they have.
