until they have to go without its benefits.

Canadian culture is just lest capitalistic and competitive, I gather.

That's actually nice for retailers, and lousy for customers.

There's a reason that both B&H and Adorama are in NYC.   They have watched many competitors, some much older and larger, go under by not serving their customers well.

If there is a lower price for amusing the sales staff and taking them out to lunch, that means the market is failing.   Your price depends on who you are and who you know, a little bit closer to the old USSR.

To get the best price here in NYC, I just have to show up, or pick up the phone, or go online.
