I believe that most of the manufacturers and or distributors don't really give a rats about the LHS. I emailed Tower/Great Planes a couple of years ago about this. When they give a coupon online, you can usually buy something for less than the LHS pays for it. I never got a reply.
The other side of it is just free enterprise. I'm sure if some shop is selling tires at roughly half price, they are not making much if any profit on them. There isn't that much profit in this stuff, you know. They are attracting people to their website, though.
Just my 2cents.
