Walkin customers get better pricing than you when YOU'RE COMFORTABLE? :)

I'm going through reciepts to double check profitability. I am stumbling across instances where I am finding Joe Blow off the street getting better prices than us spending $2k per week.

 

This is what i believe happens when a parts house knows "You're comfortable" like Ken was.

 

Over time, if someone is paid commission's on sale (not gp) it is the natural course of what happens. You're comfortable, it's convenient, it's a product of the system. My realtor will "negotiate" for me but how intensely? If I'm asking them to take a pay cut to make a lower offer how enthusiastic will they be? Not very. Product of the system.

 

On another example

I was quoted 3 prices today for gas tank straps on a '98 Tahoe. $130, $133 and $54. I did the extra calling because no place could get it for a week. I'm glad I am not to comfortable.

 

I'm not mad. It is what it is, they all do this and is not because I'm not just "doggedly loyal" to one vendor.
