Public Service Announcement - Dorman Products Price Fixing
« on: July 28, 2017, 10:01:17 AM »
FYI - from RockAuto's current newsletter: http://www.rockauto.com/Newsletter/?a=NewsletterLinkEmail, quoted below, since the newsletter changes monthly...

Quote
Dorman, a supplier to RockAuto for more than fifteen years, now demands all retailers sell at the same price (or higher) -- or not sell at all. The policy looks like an attempt to protect auto part chain stores and their "charge double what we paid" mark-ups, in the face of slowing sales and plunging stock prices.

RockAuto is an independent, family-owned retailer. We work hard to provide reliably low prices, on all the parts your car will ever need. Our customers depend on their vehicles to get to work, school and all the other places life takes them. We will not participate in any scheme to force consumers to pay higher prices.

Over the next few weeks, we will remove the affected Dorman parts from our catalog. Customers who purchased them in the past may obtain warranty replacements, if needed, through our Order Status & Returns page. We hope customers who need parts in the future will support us, and manufacturers who offer honest, affordable prices, by purchasing other brands.

To be honest, every Dorman product I've bought over the years has been pretty much worth exactly what I paid Rock Auto for it (or less).  IMHO, their products are shyte

Rockauto will continue to take my money with that type of attitude.

To clarify my above post, Rock Auto is awesome.  Dorman (in my experience) is garbage.
