People Are Going To Buy It Anyway, Might As Well Make A Little Margin, Says Ring Rep

I spoke with a Ring rep this week who responded to my question of why a dealer should sell Ring since it is available for sale online by saying people are going to buy it anyway, might as well make a little margin.

He did not have an arrogant tone, he just said it matter of factly but it was still fairly jarring to be said at an ADI event. ADI is now carrying the full Ring line.

What do you think? Agree? Disagree?
