I find that difficult to believe, especially since we aren't discussing
a discount on parts, but rather a liberalization of a stated return
policy. Almost every one I've ever read has said "Returned parts _may_
be subject to a restocking fee.". I've also had some major vendors give
me a better price than published, just because I am "a good customer"
(alas, none of them sell LBC parts <g>)
I've never heard of any law that requires a "published discount
schedule", except if the vendor also sells to the US government (who
require that you either give them your best price, or explain in writing
exactly why not).
