bad news always brings on good news

So when talking with the buyer at TJMaxx yesterday i found out that the sell through of our boards so far is 5%.  Yes you read that correctly 5%.  That's bad news, well it is actually crappy news and it makes me want to say ewe...........
But bad news always brings on good news because this type of dilemma has caused me to think.  "How can i do better next time? What can i do to help our sales and their sales better?"  
 
I have an idea of a new line of cutting boards i want to make that will be more in the cost range where customers will purchase at TJMaxx.  I do not want less quality by which i will never compromise, but a different way of making the board which takes less time, therefore less labor.  I am competing with "Made in China" pricing which is a competition directly in China's favor. 
So i am off to make some boards "differently" and i want to come up with the best idea yet. And if it doesn't work i guess i am moving to China.
 
Everyone should have a Weber Company cutting board!
