It's worth noting again that Home of Economy was a pioneer in the discount industry. Way back when there were actually laws against offering lower prices to the consumers than the manufacturer wanted. Don't laugh, North Dakota still has a law like that regarding selling milk.
There was an exception to the law in that you were able to offer discount to fleets, which was defined as owning 5 vehicles. My Grandfather, Bob Kiesau, had the idea that farmers had a lot of vehicles and if he counted their tractors and combines they deserved a discount.
He sent people out to the county seats to get the names of people that qualified to receive a discount.
