There's another frame shop about five miles from our location. We think they are great guys and do awesome work. We don't have anything against them, but for some reason they can't stand us.Every shop within a 50 mile radius is a competitor, that being said, I do have good relationships with other shops which includes me or them coming into the shop to say hi. You can have friendly competition.
Interesting. We have a similar situation. All the other frames shops in the area we know and are friendly with them, trade services, materials, etc. One frameshop has no relationship with any of the others including mine. They have been known to talk down about everyone elses framing, even though there is no merit to such comments. We can only assume they somehow feel threatened or so highly competitive that they feel it necessary to insult the other's work.There's another frame shop about five miles from our location.

Last year they needed some help during the holidays and asked if they could borrow our part timer, we said sure. A few months back we called looking for some last minute mats, and magically they were too low to share at the time.
We don't stress, but we've been told they are stressed
