Guaranteeing the lowest price?
Retailers compete to find ways of showing that their prices are the lowest on the market. Leroy-Merlin maintain that they will refund twice the difference if a customer finds the same product at one of their competitors for a lower price. C-discount offers 10 times the difference. Darty also offers a refund for a cheaper price, but only for the difference between their price and the one found elsewhere. Other retailers go further, and offer automatic money back guarantees. Who is right? Is offering a price guarantee a good strategy? And if so, what is the most effective rate of refund? Is an automatic money back guarantee effective?>>> Read More
