Major companies like TC and SCS sell their cubes for as close to wholesale as they can. The thing is, they're still running businesses. They have other costs to pay than just the cube, plus the company itself needs to have profit too. If cubing stores started selling cubes for wholesale or wholesale + $1, then they'd go bankrupt immediately. You're assuming that they sell it for a higher price due to greediness, but they do it due to needing to make more money than they spend

that's just business; you buy low and sell high.

If people buy an item at a higher price they're either not willing to spend the time to shop around for a lower price (because they feel their time is more valuable, hence paying a few dollars more for something is a better deal than spending hours trying to save a few bucks), or they just don't care.

Either way that's business.

Nothing is being exposed this is how the world and most economic markets work.
