said by Tx:While I'd agree, here's the thing...Aggregated pricing is coming, so its either sticker shock now, or sticker shock later...isn't it by 2014 that everyone has to be on aggregated? So, ultimately...its going to be an increase now, or later...it is inevitable unfortunately.... said by tristen1230:
Ya. That is what I was hearing too. I think you got to look at it this way. Loosing a 100 but gaining thousands I think may be worth it. But then you got the side where you want to make ALL customers happy. A couple options.
1. Raise it $10 and gain many customers but may loose some in Chatam.
2. Don't raise it ten dollars and gain many customers making everyone happy but not gaining as much money.
3. Don't bring it at all.
Problem here is, Chatam is TSI's home town. You don't bite the hand that feeds you. In a sense at least. If it were my business, i wouldn't be ignoring my home town customers for the sake of money.
Normally i'd 10000% agree but when it involves home town and grown businesses, it's bad on your image to ignore local folk's best interests as well.
That's my two cents on that.
