If i am understanding this correctly Cryptozoic have ceased selling product directly to collectors via the website.
From now on you must buy from a shop / retailer.

Yup, just read it on the website.

Look, CZE made the big fuss about selling to a dedicated network of authorized dealers. Now this solves two problems for them. They don't have to listen to complaints from their dealers that they are competing with the E store. And they need less staff to service the E store.

Everybody wins except third party dealers and collectors.

Seems like limiting product in any way is a bad idea. . . At least they are trying something, but geez, I tried to find local retailers but... "We couldn't find at least 10 locations in the area, so here are 10 closest locations." The closest location is 45 minutes away. . . So I'm lucky that there is *something* by me (then again it's a shop I've been to, and won't go back to) . . . There are 2 shops about 90 minutes from me I've never heard of, but both are gaming shops so I don't have high hopes they actually carry cards -- neither mentions cards on their website.

After that -- store #4 is 175 miles from me. . .

I live near the 3rd largest city in the US and I don't have viable options to buy Crypto product locally. . . I have bought from their website.

You can use the locator to limit the search to trading cards.

Nothing in Arizona at all. I registered and supplied my info for my retail presence. Not sure it will do any good.

My biggest beef was that they allocated product to retailers but still had plenty to sell on their website. That always seemed wrong. But, they did sell at full retail so in most cases it was much easier to find a cheaper alternative elsewhere.
