Partially true, but many times retailer ARE beholden to companies due to companies holding them hostage with supply. For example, if a store is selling beer/budweiser products and doesnt give Bud a certain amount of "frontage" or shelf display space they can get cut out if Bud wont sell to them anymore so they lose business. Not saying Cryptics stuff is that valuable but it shows a point on retailer/producer relationships
