$FAST Fastenal saw 'growth with larger customers' in Q2 "We experienced higher unit sales in the second quarter of 2024 primarily due to growth with larger customers and Onsite locations opened in the last two years. The impact of product pricing on net sales in the second quarter of 2024 was a decline of 30 to 60 basis points, in contrast to the second quarter of 2023, which experienced an increase of 190 to 220 basis points. The decline reflects lower fastener pricing, which is a by-product of lower transportation costs, as well as lower pricing in certain safety and other products categories."
