Keep in mind that a retailer needs a reason to replace an established card line in their store. They want to make sure every square inch of their establishment makes money and they’re not going to stop selling a profitable line unless they’re absolutely sure the new line (meaning yours) will outsell it. Of course, there’s always the chance they have a line they’re eager to replace but you can’t count on that.
