A group of sci-fi tans has launched a catalog venture designed to change the way fans buy merchandise by mail and phone. At first glance, 800-TREKKER could be just another entry in the endless galaxy of science fiction collectible retailers. However, there are several important differences.
Best of all Worlds
800-TREKKER combines the energy, emhusiam and courtesy of fan-run organizations, with a high level of professionalism not always found in purely fannish ventures.
While fans prefer to buy from other fans (rather than from large impersonal corporations), they also want to know that they have made the best buying decision possible. 800-TREKKER guarantees it.
The 800-TREKKER Advantage
Since the company is actually run by fans who have bought science fiction collectibles themselves, they have an unfair advantage over purely commercial ventures. They actually care about providing quality products and value to their customers. What a concept!
Of course, every company in existence promises quality, value and service. What makes this group different? Plenty.
In a Nutshell
The concept is simple. Provide fellow fans with a great catalog, unrivaled guarantee, and 24 hour toll-free access to the most responsive, fan-oriented catalog company in the world.
