    Actually, I was just kidding about the free samples.

    I would be interested as a retailer.

    I see that you sell directly to the public off your website. You also do Rx fulfillment through Coastal.com. I wish you good luck!

    I'm sorry, I didn't mean to waste your time. I have 10 locations, and try not to carry lines that I have to compete with the onliners for. Nothing personal, there are just too many other companies out there, without carrying an internet line. I should have researched it before I asked. Best wishes...
