Not listing the price

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Davidoc, Apr 3, 2002.

  1. There's a store near where I live in Wheaton Maryland called Chuck Levin's Washington Music center. They have veritably no low end gear, but lots of high end stuff. (smiths, alembics, etc.)

    Nothing there has a price tag, but when you ask for a price, their really cheap. I just bought a Stingray 5! for $1100!

    Is not listing the price, but having it cheap common?
    Any thoughts on this?

    That is a fairly common practice in sales of all types. Auto dealers love it. I have also seen it in a variety of electronic stores and such.

    One music store near me marks everything list price with a tag that reads "ask about a cash discount."

    I guess it is their way of being flexible with pricing without having to change tags all the time.

    Depending the volume pressure they are under and how they size up the current suc-, er customer, they can price accordingly.
