    Still no report, but just items that are the same or lower at Crappy Tire.

    Oops!

    "Home coffee maker price difference $6.00 - lower at Mallwart then CT"

    Looks like the Crappy People let one slip by, LOL!

    Better for consumers to just go to Walmart first.

    Besides, if you aren't happy with it, or it's defective, you can returns it for a prompt refund at Walmart.

    Crappy Tire? Not a chance.

    You just don't understand do you?

    There isn't "A report" that shows every product price vs. every competitor. It's an ongoing process, every single day. Prices fluctuate based on all sorts of different factors. Price of raw materials, shipping costs, volumes, vendors, foreign exchange and of course, competitive pricing.
    It's a constant game on a National scale to be competitive with other retailers while maintaing profit margins. it's not just a "higher / lower" analysis.

    You know I'm all for healthy debate, good conversation etc... with people who either understand the topic, or seek to understand the topic at hand. Whatever that topic may be. It seems on this "consumer advocate" site, you're trying to be the expert in everything retail when in fact your knowledge is clearly very limited.
    You're an angry consumer. Leave it at that. Don't try to be something you're not.

    Fine.

    Pick a city.

    Pick a day.

    Pick a competitor.

    Show us just one study that shows Crappy Tire doesn't have higher prices for non-sale items.

    Shouldn't be hard, since you've got a whole team working on this "day in day out".

    Or will you admit that Crappy Tire really does have higher prices for non-sale items, as your customers have already observed?

    my customers have already observed? Have they? On which products? Where's your study that shows customers know who's got best pricing?

    Anyways back to the point at hand. I don't have "a study" - there's not a peice of paper that says on this day, this store had this price vs this price on this item. it's ongoing, daily. I'm a dealer, i'm not the pricing specialists. I don't do the market analysis. Every day the price updates are sent to the stores electronically, and they are put on the shelf accordingly. Again it's not just a higher lower game.

    Even if i did have 'a study' you'd just claim I made it up anyways so that's a futile exercise lol you would NEVER believe ANYTHING that came from a CT representative.

    You want the proof, pick a dozen identical items and shop them at Walmart, CT and whoever else you have in your area. Find out for yourself what "my customers already know" lol what a silly claim.
    I'm already telling you the answer. In some areas we will be higher, In some lower, in some par.
    It all depends on the retailer we are comparing to.

    Do yourself a favour, it might help you understand the concept of pricing in retail. It's not black and white as you may think. Research the concepts of "leader, player and convenience" as they relate to products and product lines.
    It will assist you in understanding the framework that retailers operate within when they are executing pricing, merchandising etc....

    So, ummm...

    If you don't have "a study", then how do you know that your prices aren't higher then your competitor's?

    You seem pretty confident, yet have no facts at all at your disposal.

    Are you just a really good guesser?

    You are very good at calling your own posts. LOL. So easy to spot faker advocates. And if the feet stomping and black is white mentality doesn't work, then the conspiracy theory is sure to follow.....Hilarious!

    Well, luckily us consumers can donate to this fine e-commerce site that benefits so many. We take US dollars via PayPal and the link can be found right at the top of this post. Thank you for your $$.

    Re: High school staff...

    Since you've got that "team" working away on these comparisons every day, and you are so certain that your prices aren't higher, it shouldn't be hard for the Crappy People to "put up or shut up", and prove their prices are lower.

    Of course, the "magically disappearing" reports might be too damaging for the Crappy People to actually provide.

    We'll just have to wait and see what they provide ...

    Re: High school staff...

    Interesting article on price matches.

    Too bad the topic is regular, non-sale priced items.

    Nice try, though.

    Oh, still waiting for those reports/studies the Crappy People have used to base their opinion on!

    Don't forget to contact the "Pricing Team" - I'm sure you read their reports regularly, rather than relying on your own guess-work, LOL!

    Thanks in Advance.
