Hello everyone,

I have searched this forum and the rest of the internet on this subject yet all the information about it seems to be at least from 10 years ago.
I am publishing my own books and will try getting them into Gardners. Now, all over the internet there is this idea that wholesalers and distributers buy at a %55 discount, yet on Gardners' website there is this phrase: "Please tell us what percentage off rrp you will be selling to us at, but remember that we take our margin & thenpass the rest onto Waterstones so this needs to be an attractive offer." and no other mention of a percentage.
Has any of you worked with Gardners? Is %55 discount an industry standard or is there any way haggling this down?
