It varied years ago and it's been a long time for me.Is it a secret society where you have to hint at the discount instead of just telling us what it is?
"Back in the day" it was roughly 5-8% above cost. Corporate just wanted to make sure shipping and putting it one the shelf was covered.
So basically the entire store was roughly half off. There was a monthly limit but during Christmas that was kind of loose.
As long as you weren't flipping products it was no questions asked.
