my hubby worked in retail and they usually double the price at what they buy them in at. they make enough profit, so i wouldnt worry at all. they know what they're doing!! the odd good gesture they do like this is to keep you coming back so they can make more profit out of you at a later date. they'll always end up quids in (or dollars in!?)Jim said:Fish fry, I'm afraid I have to disagree. I would never knowningly steal from someone. But this wasn't stealing, it was taking advantage of a situation. I've worked enough retail to know that some of these places mark-up from wholesale is stealing in it's own right.
If you feel guilty, then just remember the words of the great P.T. Barnum:
Never give a sucker an even break!
ghost shrimp here are 25 cents how much are they usually there for youdarkwolf29a said:Yeah, I got a huge deal too this weekend. We went to visit my gf's Mom and walked in to a LFS. Well, guppies for $2 and ghost shrimp for .30???!!!! Holy cow...when I can find ghost shrimp in Green Bay, they aren't cheap. And, usually, I can't find them. I bought 20 of them and a female guppy. $10 and I got a lot of stuff. LOL
