I once mentions to the owner of a LBS that I'd like to buy my tires from him but his price was considerably higher than what I could get if for a Mountain Equipment Co-op (before they went crazy with their prices LOL) and he said he'd match their price. He told me he'd match any of their prices. I told him that he couldn't make much money doing that. he told me that if I bought the tires or other stuff elsewhere that he'd make nothing. I don't know what his markup was but he was a really decent guy who loved bikes, riding them, and encouraging others too. He was a licensed coach and offered coaching sessions as well as wind-trainers for winter use in a back room of the shop.

Cheers
