Ok, so I need to know who, if anyone is in the wrong here. To start off, I'm just a 21 year old kid who may or may not be oblivious to how the real world works, but I feel I'm pretty well educated and my parents taught me right from wrong. I went into my favorite music that I have been VERY loyal to store to ask my salesman, Toby, about some auarlex foam. We looked over the charts and decided that a "project 2" kit would be sufficient for what I need at the moment. He quoted me $500 for it. I told him that I wasn't ready to buy that day, but that I would do a little more research on my own and be back. Well, last week, I went in and was ready to buy, and I brought a quote from an online store for $380. He said there was no way he could match that price with the free shipping, but that he could do it for $400. He explained that Hurricane Katrina had somehow affected Aurelex's production costs and that everyone selling this kit was now selling it at $500. Cool. I like the store, I like Toby, and $20 isn't a big deal. I'll take it. Cool, so I come in today with my truck to pick up the foam. I get home and start unloading the boxes and, taped to the bottom of the box, is the store's price tag, labeled at $400! This almost certainly tells me that the kit was purchased by the store pre-Katrina! This is where I get a little washy. This would mean that this music store was simply trying to capitalize on a rather unfortunate situation, and to me, their tactic seems quite unfair and, frankly, unethical. Does this bother anyone else or does it just bother me because I'm the one buying it? Should I be upset about this? I mean...I do live in a capitaliztic society, but I felt I was, in a way, lied to.
