whats happin' with buisness today ....

I'm pissed . its not the first time I have been quoted prices , and then all of the sudden they change .

I finally decided to order a US style t/gate , I thought I would check the price out. I phoned a local parts store , I wont say names , L_ _ _ _ o , and was givin a price of $78 . I ordered it .

so It comes in , and is delivered to my shop.. $110.00...WTF ... so I phoned back and asked about it , and was told , sorry I made a mistake ...Thats BULL SH!T , I have to pay for your mistake $30.00?????

as a small business owner , I cant understand this phylosophy ...I always thought you were supose to look after your customers , and honer a quote .

I spend quite a few $$$ at this place ... but I'll tell ya , i think its time to start shoppin' for another parts supplier . :(

i think you two need to team up to make a super mega toyota store in penticton[36]

when i was a newb to the world of auto modification i paid lordgay 450$ for a mustang short shifter. a month later they had it on special for 159$. :( what a way to welcome someone into a hobby

wouldnt that be the "cats meow " ...

I have thought about it ... and am actually working towards that .. I have 27 years exp. , and have done it before (for someone else). But it takes capital that I just dont have .. anyone wanna invest ? :)


There is no local salesman anymore for the store here ... and staff turnover seems to be a weekly thing ... Management has changed almost as much as I change my underware .

I'm a pretty loyal customer , and always pay my bills (usually before there due) but i'm at a loss .[B)]

Had some problems with that parts store first time I worked in a shop. Went with Wakefield and never had a problem.

I'm not a drunkaholic, occifer...

I work for a parts store in Chilliwack
If I did that to you I would loose my job.

I worked for L____O for four years, and dumb shit like that is just the reason I left.

Dont let them do this to you!

talked to the manager yesterday morn ...

reluctantly , he agreed that I had a good point , but suggested to me that his computer could not go any lower then $103.00 . so after further discussion , he agreed to discount future purchaces another 25$ to make up the difference .

I got the gate that afternoon .
