I have read about how many retailers are getting tired of people coming to their store, investigating products, asking questions, and then leaving to buy the item online at what they believe to be a cheaper price. ( altho with shipping is it really ever that much cheaper?? ) The practice is called showrooming and its starting to really irritate some.
I know it was bugging Best Buy for a bit...but they were kicking around the idea of beating "showroomers" by offering the products at the price the people were thinking that they would get online. ( I think thats a better idea...then there is no waiting for the mail to bring it to you!)
But....some stores just decide to throw down instead. And decide to charge people for even LOOKING in their store. Really.
Now, I didn't major in business in college, but my gut instincts tell me....probably not a good business move?? I mean its a health food store of sorts....most people would look for new products and ideas I would think...and probably even buy stuff. Unless people are charged to just walk in the door. ( basically a cover charge...but no band!)
I don't think it will work. At least it wouldn't with me!
