Greedy company owners, arsehole managers, and dumb k0nt employees will seal the deal.Game, Makro, CNA, Incredible.....All these stores will eventually close as they do not know how to enter the online world, have a good website, logistics or how to deliver products on time and efficiently.
In economics you are set to capture more of the market, or maximize sales, if you charge exactly what everyone in the market is willing to pay - or something like that.They charge more for the same product at Game and Makro, never understood this.
And I found the ones at my nearest store quite condescending, mildly judgerag....and argumentative when made aware thereof.
It made sense in the same way Shoprite and Checkers are owned by the same person. Dion Wired was meant to cater to high-end consumers. Unfortunately, online retailers are eating into that market.Game, Makro, Dion Wired all sell similar products and at time identical with differing prices. This was bound to happen to either one of them. It just never made sense.
The Tafelberg near me is always happy to try their damndest to price match other stores. Takealot had a special (an actual special) on a Samsung TV, went to Tafelberg to see if they had the same one, mentioned to the sales guy it was cheaper on Takealot and he said he would match the Takealot price.I actually ended up buying both a soundbar and TV from Dion Wired during the last ±14 months. They had the best prices and available stock. I could not find the items cheaper at Tafelberg Furnishers or online. Good service too. They became my store of choice recently.
