Re: Futureshop/Bestbuy abruptly shut down a dozen stores

said by TLS2000:

They said that they didn't authorize Canada Computers as a competitor of them so they wouldn't price match.

Translation: "we're not going to price match because we don't want to." Brilliant strategy!

They did price match things for me on occasion, even though the only reason I was shopping there was that the competitor with the lower price was out of stock! But I wasn't asking for outrageous discounts.

Exactly! They have a posted policy, but they only follow it if they feel like it.

What I see happening is that one chain is going to disappear. They'll rebrand it all to either Best Buy or Future Shop.
