Online Retailers vs. Local Distribution: Misconceptions Demystified

Check out our three-part blog series, Online Retailers vs. Local Distribution: Misconceptions Demystified, from Chad DePasquale, HESCO’s Director of Strategic Initiatives.

Part 1: How to Save 61% by Switching to HESCO

Misconception #1 – Big online retailers are ALWAYS less than local companies. The narrative is that large online retailers can deliver the products at a much better price than the local store/distributor can. See examples where we prove that false.

Part 2: Shipping Smoke and Mirrors

Misconception #2 – Free Shipping is saving me money. Make sure you’re being an informed consumer and looking at the total cost of acquiring an item. The free shipping may be enticing, but a bell should go off in your head as you ask yourself, “How are they able to absorb the shipping costs?” Most of the time, the answer is because of you paying a higher price! 

Part 3: Think Before You Click

Misconception #3 – All distributors should be offering quantity price breaks. Our people know we don’t play gimmicks with pricing. We don’t offer price break on quantities, because our everyday price is as competitive as we can make it! Don’t mess around with their pricing games — let HESCO take care of you and not try to confuse you with pricing tactics, enticement of free shipping, or the misconception that being a bigger retailer equates to better prices.
