And its not a mistake. I came across an oddity today so I took advantage of it. It's for the purchase of a consumable used in this business. The cost just happened to catch my eye on the shelf tag and with a little calculation in my head I figured it had to be a mistake. I called someone over who worked there and she confirmed the price was valid and correct. Problem, only a small qty on the shelf. I checked the quality and it was good. No problem as she directed me to the special order desk and asked me how much I cared to purchase . I told her and she said no problem (she quickly called the manufacturer placed the order and promised me 7-10 days for delivery) and then told me that I could save 10% with a house acct which I could apply for on the spot. Took about 15 minutes and I was given a 7 thousand dollar credit line on the spot. While I was filling out the app she brought me a hot chocolate. Could it get any better. As I'm placing the order and signing for it with my new acct. the lady comes back and gives me an Igloo water cooler complete with cup dispenser and says thanks, the 10% discount applies to all future purchases over 500 that you use your house acct. with. Now this store is not a store that is wholesale to the trade only. I normally reserve these types of purchases to those suppliers that cater to contractors only. This was just so wrong and I'll tell you why. My normal supplier could not come close to what I paid for this product. In fact I could have purchased 10K dollars of it from them and it still would have been less at this open to the public non specialized store. I could have purchased 1 pc and the price was the same with them. ten percent with the house acct and 500 dollar purchase only sweetens the deal. what I'm getting to is what is going on here. Things are topsy turvy when a consumer can go into a store and buy a much smaller qty of similar product for less than what a trade pro can for for much larger purchases. Again we are talking about quality product with proper listings not inferior lower grade product. This same store had an MR-16 LED at a cost that I could also not touch from my supplier. I don't know of the quality but it was so cheap that I picked one up to check it out. It really has got to have you wonder what is going on.
