And yes, the merchandise offerings at NCTP have slipped severely over the last few years - the only real 'Exclusive' they have is the art watches, and they aren't cheap.
And they are selling everything in the store at Full List or even a bit more which can't help - people who are shopping for high ticket items like a watch usually know what the items should cost, and most of what NCTP carries now is available through retail channels (Target, Wal-Mart, eBay, etc.) for a whole lot less.
(The folks Mfgr. Repped Costume Jewelry & Accessories for a whole lotta years, so through osmosis I kind of notice these things.)
If they want to kick-start sales, start selling things there that people want to buy, and don't try to charge too much over the "Street Price". People will pay a modest premium for an exclusive, but not usury for a commodity item.
