We just got an owl. From Zonko's.

All further orders are CANCELLED.

We blew the bloody store doors off for him for Halloween and Christmas was going to be even better, but no, he's CANCELLING us.

WHAT?!

Oh, no! Why? Did he say?

Be polite when you write back. We don't want to burn any bridges. After all, it probably wasn't his idea.

You know why this happened?

I suppose we can sort it out well enough.

If it's who I think it is, it's enough to make Zonko's lose out on some really decent profits.

Probably best to put a new ad in the Prophet -- tell people we're going exclusively owl-order, but make it sound like it's a good thing.

I'll work on it.

Bloody hell is right.

I've tried to keep a low profile, but I might have to talk to Lucius again.

We had such a good first week, too.

Oh, bloody hell. I'm sorry.

Bugger, didn't see that coming. And I should have. To undercut your business, he has to cut your income stream. Classic--should have remembered that from my training with the goblins. I remember a book on financial warfare--I'll have dig out my notes.

Warning: he may try to go after your suppliers next. Make sure you have two or three sources for everything, and keep your noses clean. Strictly legal sources only. Your consultants, too--he may try to lean on your packaging designer, for instance.

I'm dead sorry. That stinks! But there's something to be said for building an owl order network, so you'll have multiple streams of income to fall back on.

That's not on!!

We're totally starting a boycott! I've been talking to people and no Gryffindor's buying anything from Zonko's again until they have Weasley Whizbangs back on their shelves! I bet other Houses will join in.

We'll show them! And we'll tell them, too! I've got parchment out in the Common Room and we're writing letters to Zonko's and The Prophet.

We've got your backs!

Thing is we can't go in and talk to them. Not until next Hogsmeade day. But we can write.
