Ooooo yeah. Don't get me started on paint mark up in NZ. Some mark ups to retail can be in the 100-200%. Massive discounts 10-20-40% can be advertised to the consumer and they lap it up thinking thye are getting a great deal. Then there several layers of trade
discounts. These can be from 40-60% and then you have the proffesional high volume trade
discounts of 60-80% and then you have the retailers/stockists discounts of upto 100%.
Yes we have 250ml, 500ml, 1ltr, 4ltr, 10ltr and sometimes 20ltr.
250ml is almost the price
of 500ml, 500ml is almost the price
of 1ltr and 1ltr is almost the price of 4ltr. So the most economical way of buying
for most of us is 4ltr. A 1ltr maybe say $50 and a 4 maybe $89. for instance.
