Once upon a time . . .
Once upon a time -- like about two years ago -- a handful of determined and optimistic folks had an idea for a business. It would provide on-line access to hundreds . . . no, thousands . . . wait, hundreds of thousands
of MRO products. These products would be competitively priced but with fat margins buried in deceptively complex shipping terms. Hold it . . . products that are competitively priced AND with free shipping
And this dynasty would be called Bruce’s Bargain Basement. Actually, that would be a stupid name based on tired and worn alliteration. Probably better just call it Zoro Tools.
