Has he of heard of the internet?

Recommended Posts

Half way between my shop and my home is a small independent shopfitter. Should be ideal, but he always tries to overcharge me. I always like preferably to use independents, and will happily pay a small premium for convenience and service. But I went in for a price gun, he wants to charge me over £40, with no extra labels, I can get the same model for £30, with free labels and delivery off the internet.

About four years ago I needed 6 mesh panels, he wanted £16 each (plus vat), I knew I could get them for £11( plus vat) and free del). He also likes to charge me vat, then try to not give me an invoice. All the time making it sound like he's doing me a favour. oh well, Back to Morplan.co.uk

I would say that is the difference between business to business selling and business to public selling. Most of my customers would not so price sensitive over a £1 difference,(assuming you sell kiwi at £2,or you could just sell a different brand) even if it was double the price.

Cherry blossom on display, at £2.50. Kiwi " under the counter, on request" at £2. Looking at maybe just selling black and neutral kiwi at £2, cherry blossom for all the other colours £3. Trying not to give it too much thought as it accounts for probably under 1% of sales.

We have had people walk out over a 50p price difference maybe they are just tighter buggers up north.

I once had a guy who stormed out over the price of a key, only to turn up 4 hours later, after visiting what must have been every other key cutter in the city. Turns out I’m 50p cheaper than the guys across town

Some years ago I had a person in the shop who wanted 'two key' - £3.00 said me - '£3.00 that is much to much money in chalvey they are £2.00' I said go to chalvey. reply' he does not have them'  wait for it,  wait for it. Ahh said I when I dont have them they are only £1

He stomped off as well. Sad was I
