    Hope that DOES NOT include the hangers!! Tell the customer there was a mess up and to take it up with the salesman, unless they are a good customer. Otherwise you are going to be stuck at that price. They could spead the word on the price and you will be stuck explaining this for a long time!!!

    Out source them to one of the bigger wholesale guys and you can still make some money on them without much more than a few emails/phone calls.

    Why would you let him? Confused as how you would let a salesman do this to you. Do they get 100% free reign to throw any price out there they want? In my opinion that's a quarter of market value, and you're still going through with the job?

    you're literally losing $ by wasting your time on this job. Why make your customer happy if you already admitted they're not buying from you again?
