Catherine: Have you had a chance to look over the contract?
Jerry: Yes, it looks great. The only problem we might have is with the termination clause.
Catherine: How’s that?
Jerry: Well, it says that either party can terminate, given just 60 days’ notice.
Catherine: Yes. That gives you a way out if you have second thoughts or if some problem comes up.
Jerry: I appreciate that. But what protection do we have if you decided to terminate early? We’ll be left with empty shelves right in the middle of the Christmas season!
Catherine: We can easily change that, if that’s what is worrying you. As long as you are complying with the terms of the contract, we wouldn’t have any reason to terminate.
Jerry: Thanks! That would be reassuring to us.
