Not all products can be that lucrative and how many of those will you sell in a month, 10, 20? The S & D chain is the only way to determine what will and what won't allow for a larger markup.

One place could buy better due to their annual sales being better, therefore they get a better percentage on their orders, so they can enjoy a better buffer in the markup department. Newer stores/chains suffer from having to overbuy for the better price and often have bulk of junk (and end up selling it all at a great loss).

As for a retailer giving you the real wholesale price. I seriously doubt that, unless he showed you the exact packing slip that it came with. I'd buy an engine from someone who has the best price (availability is also an issue). Markup makes prices either great or horrible. Too many horrible prices and you lose your customer base and gain a terrible word of mouth experience.
