To Discount or Not To Discount
Goods offered for sale via the website are generally listed at full RRP. We regard ourselves as a shop that is happy to supply goods by post and not as a dedicated 'online retailer'.
In store we are a bit more flexible
The practice of shopkeeping has somewhat fallen out of fashion in a world dominated by spreadsheets and percentages, where employees are given no freedom to look after or build a relationship with their customers. The internet has peddled the myth that it is always the best and cheapest option. All too often it is simply cold, cynical and lazy.
The weakness of any system built on trust, is that it is often quite difficult to precisely pin it down in to words and contracts, even if it makes an obvious sort of sense in reality. So, some examples of 'Games Store Mathematics' and 'Round Number Theory',
- A game with an RRP of £34.99 offered at 10% discount becomes £31.49, which we call 'an ugly number'. Applying RNT gives "Thirty Pounds", and GSM results in £29.99 (with cash customers invited to put the odd penny in the charity box).
- A game with an RRP of £59.99 offered at 10% discount becomes £53.99, which doesn't look too bad under Round Number Theory. Fortunately, Games Store Maths enables us to instead throw-in an expansion for free or drop the price to £51.99 just "because". On rare occasions you may even get a free dinosaur!
We don't promise to match every price you can find on the internet.
We do appreciate that people take the time and make the effort to visit the store.
We do our best to look after our customers and to make your visit to the store worthwhile.
