Until the Reject Shop next to us put in the same range of low-cost Bartel calendars as us we were selling them at the suggested price. As soon as they got their calendars, we had no choice but to price match. We discovered the considerable price difference between our price and the Reject Shop’s price when a customer pointed it out.
Had we known that Bartel was going to supply the reject Shop we would not have taken on this range.
Suppliers need to be transparent with us – otherwise we are not able to make fully informed decisions.
Once bitten twice shy as they say.
