I have to agree with Leon, I have a relative that works at Grainger and he talks about Grainger's efficeincy and how most of these branch's run themselves. I have a bullish outlook on this company. They have invested heavily with the E-commerce and B2B conectivity with Ariba, E-Commerce, and Oracle to name a few. Working with companies like that tells me that they are on the cutting edge of the e-business front. Take this investment with the 75+ years experience of managing the supply chain and you have a company that will be pulling away from it's competitors in the market. Grainger seems to be having troubles with managing their costs in the past, but with the technology investment you will see that being reversed. [This is how we are having such economic growth with not increase in prices].
