Re: Ripped off ? or a fair profit ?

Those are fair points, however I would guess that most items the Chandler stocks are purchased at wholesale prices. In my experience with wholesalers the discounts you get for buying larger quantities are incremental. 10-20% at the most. That doesnt explain the 500% markup. In my business when we resell parts to the end user the most markup we have is 100%, and that is only on smaller items, under $100. Bigger ticket items are only marked up 20-40%.

I want to support the brick and mortar stores, but they need to at least TRY to be competitive.
