Default How much discount do tradesmen get?

I considered RS to be expensive in the first place but for a business
prompt next days delivery can be very important.

They also had an interesting policy: if you ordered and there was
no stock, that was the end of it, they wouldn't schedule
subsequent delivery, they simply cancelled the order.

This meant that whilst they were very handy for getting stuff for
immediate use, we were banned from ever using them for production
