    What is a "jobber price"?

    I did some searching on google, but couldn't find anything definitive. Near as I can figure it's something like wholesale prices? :dunno:

    Basically , its what I can buy it for direct from manufacturing .

    Usually its marked up after we buy it for wholesale , then marked up after that for retail .

    I only give those prices to long standing charge accounts who are there every morning , have many calls to run a day , and spend thousands a month . The big outfits in the yellow pages .
