We have reported these retail tactics to manufactures and backed distributors before.
Manufactures and suppliers need to respond and sort this problem out now.
Retail resale on none DIY products over the internet are only helping to devalue your own products and by allowing these trends to continue you are directly affecting the net trade supply of products to the approved installation trade across Europe.

Britain has been in the grips of a triple recession lasting more than 8 years, we don't want any more of this thank you.
The British public are having to deal with so much nonsense and threats of doom and gloom from this Government it makes you wonder why we don't all commit Genocide now?
I'm sorry but the amount of bullshit coming out Westminster is disturbing and ridiculous. It will make no difference to Britain in leaving and continuing to trade within the EU. The UK's current manufacturing companies that trade and supply goods are already EU compliant and they will continue to be so, if they wish to trade within the EU in the future.
