I will thank him for those Lordco Girls. Whether they work the till or delivered parts, I always have to take a gander. The competition seemed more interested in hiring smelly butch women.

Discount is based on how much your company buys from lordco.
How about I explain you need to stfu and shop somewhere else.

I dunno, I walk in and they give me good discount.......... perhaps it's my long grey beard, the grandfatherly look that is trusting, maybe because I walk in there with a swagger...... who knows? One thing is for sure, I don't go in there with an attitude.

Perhaps you and I should go together to Lordco so I can show you how it's done. If you're Asian, you can pretend to be my little grandson.

^ Having a good relationship with the people who work there helped me. Depending on which one I go to back home, I can usually come away with smaller things at nearly cost.

Sometimes being a decent person and building connections has it's ups.

How about being not being a dick of a customer?
I've shopped at many different lordco's for small stuff. I've never been given a discount less than 30% without me even asking.

Then again the last time i went, i was stuck behind a young redneckish guy who was giving the employee a hard time. He got a 0% discount.
Maybe that was you.

I wasn't a fan of his business model but hey I was buying cheap stuff. But he built a hell of an empire.
Why shit on the thread?

RIP

True that.

I was just reading the history of the company and you just have to respect what he (and his then, partner) built from 1, local store in Maple Ridge in the 70's. I mean what was the population of the area during that time? And now it's the largest, privately held auto parts distributor in Canada, plus all the charity and sponsorship he/Lordco's done.

This is sad news. 65 isn't that old. Most Canadians would be just retiring but as a business owner I'm sure he put it way more effort and hours than anyone else in his company. Shopping at Lordco has always been convenient and hassle free. The discounts are fair as they're based on how much you spend. Lordco certainly gives back to the community by not only providing jobs but also helping the automotive industry grow. A perfect example is the upcoming trade show held every year. A lot of respect goes to someone, especially a local, who built such a successful business from the ground up.
