Chapters-Indigo tried to rip me off
Today I went to the Indigo Eaton Centre location, and asked them if I could purchase it for $20 (as their site had specified). They told me that they were apparently separate entities, and that they had "different levels of overhead" according to a worker there. I said that it didn't make much sense because they are the same company, and according to her they were just under the same name but operated independently. The funniest line came from the person at the cash: "Well, it's different because the site has a lot of rare and out-of-print books". I'd like to know what that has to do with different pricing.
This is a big scam, and they are price gouging in store. If they advertise a price on their website, they should honour it in-store as well; if they are in fact the same company. This can't even be compared to the FS-BB dilemma, as the store and site have the same name!
I actually just found the book at Costco for around $17, so it's their loss, my gain.
