I would guess that you've never actually operate a retail storefront,
in that case!  I am frequently amazed that actual storefronts ever
manage to come anywhere close to the prices that a mail-order
warehouse manages to achieve...  The objection to "handling" charges
is really along the lines of "anything you buy anywhere has some
handling expenses associated with it; how come only the mail-order
places are so bold as to pass that cost on to the customer instead
of hiding it in their prices..."
