    Anyone know? Does McKenzie own Van Dyke now too? I was looking at my credit card statement and it shows "Van Dyke - McKen" for Van Dyke purchases.

    We were told about the buyout clear back in sept when we went to the mckenzie warehouse to pick up mannikins. Not sure yet if this a good thing or not. Guess we will see in the next couple years.

    Mckenzie = Van Dykes, Rinehart, etc.,etc....

    I was looking on the bottom of all my order magazines last night, Mckenzie is on the bottom front cover of most of them...
     
  11. I placed an order yesterday and asked them myself, until may you still have to order through VanDykes. After that Mckenzies will have the inventory codes set up to order directly through them.

    For those of you who have either been hibernating or in a comma the last few months, it's TRUE and guess what, since McKenzie took ownership, VanDykes shipping is now Lightening FAST!!!!

  14. Geez Michael, if you'd ever spent some time in your shop instead of running through the cornfield birthday suit style with Tommy Boy Voyer you'd be up to date on the industry news. ROFLOL

    I ordered a package a while ago and it took two weeks to get to me :(
    Musta just been a glitch lol
     
  16. When I order from Van Dyke's I get it in 1-2 days via Speedy Delivery, but I am not that far from South Dakota. It says on the invoice Van D-McKen.

    I just placed an order through McKenzie's at the Michigan show and ordered some Vandykes stuff through him to. They do own them
     
  18. Wow, noone to compare prices with pretty soon, I assure you it isnt good for us, convernient now, but customers will pay only so much for a mount and the high materials cost will just be cutting into our profits. Doesn't Mckenzie now claim they make little to no profit?? We know whats coming.......

    As of right now you can order some of Van Dyke's eye selections & their fleshing machines through McKenzie. May 1st you will be able to order all Van Dykes products through McKenzie. Van Dykes customer service & shipping will GREATLY improve with the big switch! I mean, who doesn't love those southern girls at McKenzie! You know they'll take care of ya!

    Prices may have went up but prices are going up everywhere else too... gas, Wal-mart, McDonalds!! But I'll tell you one thing, McKenzie is very grateful for & to their customers. Customer service is the number one reason why McKenzie is now the "big dog"... you can bet I'll pay a couple extra dollars just to have the BEST customer service experience & guaranteed quickest delivery on all my taxidermy supplies. :)


    Just throwin that out there... you don't have to throw it back ;D
