My hubby was looking at cameras/camcorders etc on comets online web but after trawling through pages and pages decided to have a look in store instead. The range instore did not seem so extensive, and he could not see any of the particular things he was looking at and noticed that all the prices appeared to start from £150 and upwards. So he asked a staff member 'is this all your stock?"pointing at the glass cabinet... "Yes, Sir" came the reply. "This is everything you've got?" "Yes, Sir, everything is out" My hubby then got out his phone and turned to the staff member, "do you mind waiting half an hour?" as he starts tapping into his phone."Sorry Sir" came back the confused reply. "Well, I was looking at something online but you are saying this is all you have"...."so I was wondering if I reserve an item online, would I be able to pick it up from you in the half an hour" my hubby replied.
"umm, let me check sir, what item was it you are interested in" says the staff member heading towards the shop floor computer. "look" my hubby said, pointing at various 'in stock' items on the screen.."but they are not out in the store, and you told me that is everything you have"
"I don't know why they do that" came the stumped reply "well,maybe because you are only trying to sell only the higher priced stuff in the sales" replied by hubby..
So as a word of warning, if you intend to buy from comet, do your research and look online first!
