No more discounts at Guitar Center?
According to The Guitarist blog, haggling prices at Guitar Center may now be a thing of the past.
The Guitarist writes:
It came to my attention today as I bought a set of pickups from a guy at Guitar Center who usually gives me good deals, that he wasn’t giving me a discount like he always did. I felt it odd, but for what I was buying I figured maybe they couldn’t do it with accessories, despite getting pretty big discounts on a single pack of strings. In my venture, I needed something from Radio Shack, and oddly enough, a former Guitar Center employee was there at Radio Shack.'
I asked him why he does work at Guitar Center any more, and he says:
'Mitt Romney’s Equity firm bought Guitar Center, and we’re not allowed to discount or haggle any more. All the prices that are on the tags are what you have to pay.'
