Weird that as a business he doesn't want to stock them, in addition to all the orders that we might generate right now.
My guess is, he is going to want to run a lot of them, so I hope he gives you a better price, or a wholesale price. I called him again a few weeks ago, & never got a call back.
If we just knew how many he needs. Seems like a simple question that he doesn't want to answer.
Must take some time to figure it out?
