"Rip off B&Q"

A review of B & Q by Ben Garrett written on Tuesday 28th of February 2012


I find the prices in B&Q appauling. If you buy a couple of sheets of plasterboard they charge a lot more than if you buy ten or more. If you buy ten they charge you a lot less on top if you have a trade account. So whole sale they must be buying at fraction of individual price to public. Registering as a trader with HMRC is free and 5 mins on phone and buisness card/letter headed paper will allow you to open a trade account. But if you are buying your own plasterboard/plaster it suggests you cannot afford plasterers prices so why on earth wound I want to buy from a shop that has a policy to charge public more than "trade" for exactly same goods in same quantities. Whole salers can just take orders for small amounts at same price as B&Q. What is the point in huge buyer like BQ not passing on benefits to the public and penalising us for not being in a trade(what ever that means).
