Funny, with my business they were consistently the most expensive by at least 25 percent. When I talked to the sales mgr his response was priceless. " If I purchased more product in the year I'd get a better discount" I replied that you won't get any sales frome because higher than everyone else. He then added if I brought in the hard quote from his competition he'd match the price. Duh why would I do that to my trusted supplier who's already giving me the best price.
This is a true story
(FYI ..I own a fab shop that spends $40,000/annum on hardware)
