I own a chain of bulk candy stores and from time to time (daily) people purchase large quanities of M&Ms or Jelly Belly ect… Most don’t ask for a discount and I usually wont volunteer unless I see some hesitation on there part. Example lady calls today for 16 pounds of M&Ms @ $7.99 per pound = $127.84 and she asks can I give her 10% off and I say sure, she saved $12.78 + $1.08 in sales tax. I would have gave her 20% if she had pushed it considering our average ticket is $5.00 You usually can’t do this at Big Box retailers but at Mom & Pop operations we kind of expect you to ask. Everything is nagotiable! You have not because you have asked not. Ask and Ye shall recieve.
All the best…
