Combining Orders with Friends/Locals
Do y'all combine orders with your friends, or with other people locally, to save on shipping and other costs, and/or to get access to a broader range of brands?
I ask because I stopped by two of the local shops and each of them had only one brand of shisha, and it was a bit overpriced at both. And it's not like I am in some podunk little town - this is in the capital of New York! I started thinking about placing an Internet order, but because I am looking to buy just a few boxes to try them out, the shipping costs are pretty high. It made me wonder if there are a bunch of people out there in my local area that would all want to place orders together, split shipping, and then reap the benefits of economies of scale.
Does anyone do this currently?
