On the way home from work I stopped in a thrift store to look for something. I didn't find what I was looking for, but I found a few other items that were needed in my home. Among the items was an awesome cookbook, compact, color glossy pages, all one pot meals. I love a meal with little clean up.
I brought my stuff to the check out lane, she looks at the book, says, "There's no price tag" and throws it under her counter.
"All paperbacks are $1.49", I counter. All the book prices are listed, clearly, on charts by the books.
"Doesn't matter, I can't sell it without a price tag, it messes up inventory"
I don't believe this for a moment, they aren't that high tech.
"But all your paper backs are $1.49, always"
"I can't sell it to you"
The guy behind me in line pipes up, "They do this to me all the time"
I nearly walked away without purchasing anything...but I really needed some of the other items, and they were still new, so they were worth continuing my purchase.
But to the thrift store I'd like to say:
So is it $1.49, or prices as marked?
