Well I bought my copy of MS Office last night. While in the store I got to chat to the manager.
I explained my confusion about the online/in store/collect in store prices (see the previous post). I pointed out that this had totally wiped out any chance of me making any impulse buys - I would go home, look at it online, maybe reserve it and pay the cheaper online price or more likely decide I don't really need it!
"Tell me about it."
From a series of short comments and looks, I got the impression that his on the spot sales have fallen through the floor - his huge store is now just a warehouse where people pick up stuff that they ordered on the internet.
He seemed so down hearted I didn't push about the extra price reduction...
Have a great weekend!
