I've bought several things as a private citizen (i.e. not a business) at my
local Grainger's over the past few years and they've never given me any
grief, or even an indication that they only want to deal with businesses.
I'm sure it just comes down to the people behind the counter. I must have
some nice ones working here.
So tell me, how strict is Grainger about their policy of only working with
businesses? My experience with the local outfit is that they are a little
obnoxious about drop in business from private parties (me, that is). Do you
have any tips about dealing with them? Is it easy to set up a fictional
business to make them happy?
I like the stuff they sell, but not their counter-side manner.
