That's because stores DO charge different customers different prices. We bid 
our supplies each year to establish a price based on projected uses. When I 
worked at camera stores we had a price schedule for all different classes of 
customers. It's just how business is done in the photo world. Like the camera 
store the photographer is in the business to make money (there are exceptions 
- -- like the outfit I work for) and one of the ways he does that is hold costs 
down. If the retailer is going to keep his business he's going to have to 
earn it.
