More Original Retail Price Gouging at Beyond The Rack

Currently they have an Emilio Pucci Sunglasses sale on with sale prices listed at $169-$199. Original retail prices listed at $365-$625. This particular pair is listed with an original retail price of $465, sale price $199. However a two second google search found them at Nordstrom with the retail price of $295.

But wait, it gets better! Nordstrom has a price matching policy. If you brought a computer print out of this to a Nordstrom store, you would get the sunglasses for $199!

The only point I can see to BYR price gouging on the original retail prices is to mislead customers into believing they're getting a much better deal than they actually are. What's worst is that when Nordstrom has a sale, their price will be less than the Beyond The Rack price.

I've so had it with these price gougers.

Cheers!
