3-C: Does Quality Matter?

(to be honest, not always, but sometimes yes)

quality matters

There’s a time and place to be cheap, but do consider the consequences

There’s nothing inherently wrong with “cheaping out” when it makes sense to do so.   Buying a cheap new hot tub might be good enough if the buyer doesn’t care about comfort, performance, reliability and longevity for whatever reason.  


-Someone might be selling their house in the very near future and they don’t plan to take the hot tub with them when they move.
-The film industry might need a hot tub for a scene they’re shooting.  
-A developer might promote their properties by including a hot tub.  
-Hot tubs are sometimes used as a “suggested lifestyle” staging prop for a show home.  
-A radio station or trade show might want to do a hot tub giveaway prize as a promotion
-And some people just like shiny new things and don’t really care about the long term. 

In cases like these, a buyer may be more concerned about visual presentation and bottom-dollar pricing than they do about value, performance and longevity.  

Hot Tubs Galore does offer cheap options for those who only care about the bottom dollar.  There’s nothing wrong with choosing cheap if there are logical reasons to do so. I’ll occasionally buy something from the dollar store knowing full well it’s an inferior product, when it doesn’t matter.  However, when it comes to significant purchases, expensive ventures and long-term investments, I’ve come to appreciate the importance of quality.
