    Company makes large donation to Habitat ReStore

  • By: Jordan Larimore

    Almost an entire house could be built with the supplies still streaming into the Joplin Area Habitat for Humanity ReStore from a recent donation by Guardian Building Products.

    In fact, Joplin Area Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Scott Clayton said the organization estimates it will be able to fund 50 percent of the construction costs of an entire home just with the sale of Guardian's donation.

    Last fall, Guardian bought Hawkeye Building Distribution, which operated a location in Joplin. Since then, said Terry Booth, ReStore manager, the Joplin Area Habitat for Humanity has been in contact with Guardian about plans for its products left behind in Joplin by Hawkeye.

    When It Comes to Setting Prices, You Might Be Your Own Worst Enemy

  • Inconsistent pricing in your own company can hurt you much worse than lower prices from your competitors

    By: Rick Davis

    The next time you complain about a competitor lowballing your price, consider that your biggest competitor might be you. This truth was revealed to me when a client asked how he was supposed to deal with the customer who called his inside sales associate and other area branches of the company if he didn’t get the price he wanted.

    Since then, I have asked almost every client and salesperson, “What are the chances I will get the same price on a product if I call four different people in your company?” The answer most people give is that chances are slim to none. The obvious conclusion is that lower prices are being offered arbitrarily because of fear, guilt, or special favors, not based on merit.
