Remember that sweet Sonic the Hedgehog Christmas sweater Yellow Bulldog put up for pre-order a few weeks back? Yeah, I do too because I pre-ordered one myself.
Well, they just sent an email notification to its customers who pre-ordered the sweater alerting them that there has been a significant change.
“We need to make you aware that the manufacturer ‘Numskull’ had initially intended to make this a knitted jumper (as advertised on our web store from 8/10/14 – 15/10/14), however as the pre-production samples did not meet their high standards, they have reverted to a high quality sublimation print – on a Cotton/Polyester garment,” the email read.
“The manufacture cost of this new Xmas Jumper is significantly higher as it is made on better quality material, with a sublimation print – however no additional charge will be passed on to any of our customers,” it continued.
The ship date for the sweater has also changed from Nov. 7 to Nov. 17, presumably due to the manufacturing change. What’s more, Yellow Bulldog issued a 10 percent coupon to affected customers to use throughout December.
As a customer, I can’t help but feel a little bummed out as I was really excited for the real knitted sweater, but I appreciate Numskull and Yellow Bulldog attempting to fix the issue and at no cost to me or anyone else who pre-ordered one of these.
I’m not sure if I’ll end up keeping my pre-order for the sweater. If you purchased one too, what are you planning to do?
