    Gaaa! Don't get old, kid, and reply in a forum after getting back home from a 10-hour drive from Pensacola, FL.

    Yes, I meant to say Heritage was bought by PartsTown directly, and not by the Whaley/Fesco/etc group.

    Parts town is the absolute WORST place to buy parts. In my experience, if you want to completely and consistently overpay, then that’s your place to buy!

    And thar you go. Their strategy is explained very well in that article.

    It would be terrifying to me if I was still in the biz...

    It's one thing to try and pay the least amount on parts you buy as an owner / operator.
    It's an entirely different thing when you're buying parts as the end user and price is of no concern.

    Very true.

    I get better pricing from Parts Town than I did with anyone else, much like Heritage if you want a good price you have to call them and set up an account. I even get fixed shipping rates, $30 for overnight on any items in stock. I ordered 400 belt pegs overnight, came in a massive box for $30 overnight.

    And I'm sure I'm not the biggest spending customer at any rate.


    BabBozo,

    No worries, I plan on staying young, lol.

    They are considerably higher. Like today I was pricing Stero parts with them , Heritage and Allpoints. They were the highest of the three.

    Do you have an account with them or just online pricing?

    Full credit account. And a vintage one It just takes a few seconds to check prices. Maybe the price displayed is different for different folks. If that is true they are leaving sales behind. And yes I am buying more parts on Amazon Prime. FYI monthly purchases are 25K. Maybe not big but not small either.

    I had a local vendor that would give me 40% off on stero and champion list. Without notice, he just stopped. So did my buying from him. So I ask myself, "Do you want to make 10% or nothing?" I pay in 25 days. Ask yourself who does that?

    I called Heritage today. My rep says do you ever try Partstown? I say no but I hear you got bought out by them. She was adamant that they didn't get bought, they just merged. Prolly won't see the Heritage name in a year.

    I think Parts Town bought Heritage, Parts town seemed to be getting bigger than Heritage.
