It's a free market system and a free market culture. Just because you get easily offended over spilt milk, doesn't mean you should not expect people to haggle. Costs you nothing to refuse and stay firm - it should not cause you mental distress AT ALL to do so. We do not have a communist central committee setting prices on goods in this country. It's just business.

I'm also in a business where the price is pretty much always firm. I am not offended in the least if someone asks for a discount. Fair enough, but they're not going to get it. If the market conditions suggest other wise, then I would definitely consider letting the price haggle downwards. Free markets - emphasis on free, as in individual freedom.

However I am a wee bit amazed when I am selling private sale goods and people pay my asking price?? I usually leave some room to reduce and prepare to wait long and suffer a low selling price, but some people just REALLY don't want to haggle. their choice, I do not mind at all. I like catching halibut as much as Coho.

Your in a service industry some will be satisfied with the sticker price others will want a discount. Suck it up Buttercup.

If you ask for a discount do so politely if you cannot or will not offer the discount refuse politely. When I worked in retail I would often tell the customer I was not authorized to price things different than the sticker price due to inventory controls. If he insisted on a discount simply refer him to the owner/manager.

Graves Hobby used to have the best system I have ever seen. First time there I noticed a lot of the stuff had no prices on them. I noticed Tower Catalogues all over the store and was told the prices are what ever the Tower Catalogue said. No dicker prices and that was the best price match they could give. You didn't want to argue the point with the old guy sitting in the office believe me. I watched him tell a smart ass who said he could get it cheaper online to buy it online as the store was unable to match that price.

Re: What Kind Of Deal Can You Give Me?!!

We have two local shops in the Halifax/Dartmouth area, and both offer club discounts. We also get bulk discounts on fuel, large orders of balsa, etc. We in turn, have given lifetime open memberships to the flyers at both shops, and we also encourage them to sell products at the field, especially during events. Advertising works both ways, at the field, and on our club forum. They are free to post new items, sales, etc, and they post info about our clubs to their customers. It's win-win out here.
