iIT SEEMS THAT ALL SUPPLIERS LOOK FOR MINIMUM ORDER VALUES THAT EXCLUDES MOST SMALLER RETAILERS,THIS ALSO INCLUDES THE JOINING FEE APPLIED BY HOME HARDWARE WHICH IS BEYOND WHAT MANY CAN AFFORD,INCLUDING MYSELF, ESPECIALLY WHEN FACED WITH THIS FEE OR STOCK,I FEEL ALL SUPPLIERS SHOULD CONSIDER THIS. MANY WHOLESALERS WHILST DOING AN EXCELLENT JOB CANNOT IN ALL REALITY STOCK EVERTHING MEANING LOST SALES FOR THE MANUFACTURER AND RETAILER
