(Our store has been testing a new pricing plan, with a huge price cut to basic items to get customers in the door. Milk has gone down to $1.08 for a gallon. Most people are ecstatic, but not everyone…)
Customer: “Excuse me, why is this milk so cheap?”
Me: “Our store is testing a new pricing plan. Corporate has recently decided to compete with [Small Grocery Store] across the street, and we ended up in a small pricing war.”
Customer: “But what’s wrong with it? That doesn’t make sense! Overseas they pay $8 for a gallon of milk!”
Me: “Well, we have more room to raise cows than many other countries.” *shrug*
Customer: “Well, I’m not buying this! I’m going to [Expensive Grocery Chain], where milk is a reasonable price!
(The kicker is that the same company delivers the same milk to our store and where the customer said she was going.)
