Run-Out Strategy

Run-Out Strategy

a strategic decision to allow a product in the decline stage of its life-cycle to continue to be sold, especially if the product has a sizable hard-core market which insists on buying it; often, the marketer may raise the price a little to obtain a slight premium price while paring all promotional costs.
