price gouging or what?

By Jaqui ·
I was just checking the websites of a few shops for dual layer dvd disks.

two of the largest chain stores carry a 50 piece spindle of them, same brand, so same product.

these two chains have a $30.00 difference in prices for the product.

Future Shop, usually most expensive place to buy anything, has the 50 pack spindle for $39.99
Staples, usually competitively priced, has the same memorex 50 pack spindle for $69.99

can we say price gouging?

I knew we could.

..... to meet the competitor's price or lose a customer.

Agree or disagree?

And what would you do?

I have no competitors. Further, if they are, I do not and have not recognized their existence for all the time I have been in business. Therefore, I set nothing with respect to them.

Remembrances: I attended primary schools in the 1950s. I distinctly remember, with distinct revulsion at that age, a constant exhortation about, "competition".

Didn't fly with me.

My circumstances, Max, both personally and professionally, escape your straightjacket. Maybe it's why I give you fits.

..... then you offer value - or lack thereof.

If you're losing customers, you offer no value.

P.S. I don't care when you went to primary school.

P.P.S. I don't want to fly with you.

P.P.P.S. I wear no straightjacket. In this case, you do.

P.P.P.P.S. You don't give me fits. To the contrary. I laugh at you.
