We recently posted a letter from a trader who had by-passed QVM sources to buy a mobile phone accessory online. A trader has now responded to that act of treachery (our words not theirs).
As a traditional walk-in F Shed retailer I have traditional mark-ups, as a market trader I am happy to haggle with shoppers,
I haggle with suppliers in order to get deal prices as well..
( I reserve a slight margin to give shoppers a fair go when I compete with on line portals as long as customers convey the information)
I am also happy to give a trade price to any market traders and office staff and also their friends.
Do u want the best price?
Here are some options...
show me the link on a print out I may match it,or go even lower,
we should perhaps ask the retailer for the lowest price in a discrete manner..
ps As a retailer of over 10 models of phone holders,the range starts at the $4.95, you may have got a good deal at the market just by chatting to the shopkeeper
Do some research on line, then support your fellow traders, when possible
