    Hey Bassman, I live in St Joseph. My neighbor ordered from Tri-State, were you able to get any % below invoice? I haven't ordered mine yet and have been debating going to Spencer in Spirit Lake for the 5% below invoice. I'm friends with Kadie(Doug) in your office.

    Kadie(Doug)? It's just my wife & I in our office...(unless you're talking about patients -- HIPAA requires me to say "Who?")

    I'm an optometrist and a small business man up here. I've cared for several patients who work at Tri-State, and I am in Lions club with Todd Hill. Even if I have to pay full retail, I will purchase at Tri-State because of this. If I go out-of-town with my $$$, there is *ZERO* chance any of those dollars coming back.

    That said, I joined Tread Lightly so I could get affiliate pricing -- 1% off invoice. I'm asking for 2% off invoice & top dollar for my trade. In the end, I'll be happy having a kick-a$$ truck, knowing that my neighbor also benefited from the deal.

    I totally understand supporting local businesses. I had one for many years and can appreciate your loyalties. Having a good relationship with a dealership is worth more than a few %. I thought you might be Vision Source, my bad.

    Vision Source is "friendly competition" -- which cannot be said of all the competition...;)

    Also, Tim White, my salesman's kids & ours are in the "108 family" together at school. (PM me if you want to know more)...I am loyal to a fault sometimes...

    I'm sure @spenchey would do a great job. However, the chances of him coming to my office for his eye care needs is probably *ZERO* given his distance from same. I'm happy to support my neighbors & patients who are at Tri-State CDJR in Maryville, MO for that reason. Small businesses need to stick together!
