Grainger doesn't support the trade. When is the last time you saw them putting on a class? Ones that violate that "Wholesale only" sign on the door. F'em.
Johnstone here is a mutt that does it. And anyone who buys from the big box stores is a moron. You're shooting yourself in the ass if you do. When all the legit wholesalers are gone. You'll be in isle 14 asking the 18 year old for technical advice.
Here's one that went belly up. http://goliath.ecnext.com/coms2/product-compint-0000592615-page.html

Bill what in hell you talking about, in my area Grainger is open to anyone however those that have open account with resale certificate and being in business do have different price and that isn't just Grainger but some other larger suppliers of HVAC systems So please don't talk out of your bottom end.

I told the people at our Johnstone distributor .... if you want to loose my business and 2 other HVAC contractors business...just keep selling to every Tom, Dick and Harry coming in off the street...I hope they spend over 150,000 a year here
No more sells to street people
And a sign in the store to tell them

I haven't been in the one here in years. I'll never go in there again. And I bad mouth them every chance I get.
At least until they take the "Wholesale only" sign off the door. The lying SOB's.

Johnstone here in Sw Wa, nor Portland Or. still wont fucking sell to me.
Don't forget they main store is in / and started out in Portland.
My take is that they are simply losing business because they local sales are anal retentave--trying to maintain a monopoly in todays economy is suicide.
Fuckem I say, let em die a slow painful death what with stocking a wharehouse of shit I can get direct from the source and what with their collecting their recievables at 60+days if they are lucky.

You buy those from a contractor. Or you need a state license and a local registration otherwise. A permit if necessary. And of course the federal paperwork done and sent in after taking your EPA test telling them the number of trucks and models of recovery machines you have. You do have a recovery machine and tank? Torches, a vacuum pump, gauges, thermometer, meter, tubing tools, etc right?
The HVAC trade is federally, state and locally regulated. I resent any SOB who thinks he can bypass the hoops we have to jump through to do our job. I'd have mentioned the untrained or half-assed hacks or DIY'ers but most of them don't bother to read the installation instructions much less a newsgroup.

Ignore the laws and regulations? Are you stupid or a hack? I may not like them. But it's not fair some play by the rules and others short circuit them. I'd argue you get rights with responsibility. Irresponsibility is why we have most of the laws and rules we do have. Thanks to the explosions a few years ago in California. The gas laws restrict what everyone can and can't do. And on and on. Deal with it.
Wholesalers perform services for contractors that retailers do not. Standing in line behind a knothead and his wife while they figure out what they think they want may be your idea of doing business, it isn't mine.

Bill;
In California [at least] Grainger's is an "Industrial Supplier" and not necessarily a "wholesaler" or even an HVAC/R supplier.
Johnstone on the other hand has perpetually figured out that "wholesaler" means just that. And recently [in my area anyway] they have stop selling appliance parts. [Washer, dryers, dishwashers, etc.] They're now only selling HVAC supplies. Which is going to be interesting to say the least.
There's a considerable market of "wholesale HVAC" in my area.
