...offering them products even if it fit their buying model because of how they treated us brokers. If I knew a broker who would buy from me and then resell to Grocery Outlet, I wouldn't offer her/him any future deals.
Because Grocery Outlet's buyer would buy from a broker once, and then do everything in their power to cut that broker out of the next deal and go around them and steal their source. They were notoriously unethical and didn't even bat an eye. They were the kind of company that would sell their own grandmother for an extra three cents off.
Ugh. That was a number of years ago, so I hope they've changed their ways.
