I have been a QRS dealer for years (however, not as long as John), and
was surprised about the discount dropping to only 10% for dealers. It
seems that QRS is trying to make more profit by selling direct. They
are also offering to drop-ship rolls to the dealer's customers.
It would seem that many more dealers will drop out, given the new
discount (or lack thereof). I am probably going to handle only roll
repair supplies (tabs, spools, flanges, etc.) as a convenience to
customers that buy boxes and rolls from me. I will have to raise my
prices for these items in order just to break even!
