Osprey books now sealed?
Posted by BGuy on Thursday, December 23, 2010 8:04 PM

Has anybody besides me noticed the following:  I was just at my local big-box bookstore (a branch of the Canadian "Chapters" chain, here in Toronto), looking for potential targets for my gift card, and discovered that virtually everything in the rather extensive Osprey section was no sealed in individual plastic packets, presumably so that one would be forced to buy before even assessing the product's value!  GRRR!  Isn't it bad enough that an oversized pamphlet should sell for 25 bucks?

Just wondering if others have noticed this sort of thing at their local osprey reseller or if it's just idiosyncratic to the store I visited.

No, can say i have. Every time i go to town i pop into local Waterstones and check out the Osprey line to see if theres anything on my to buy list. Was in there a few days ago and they were the same as normal. Unless its somthing that will be coming this way soon.

I am a Norfolk man and i glory in being so
