Bargaining is rude and it just might work

Wednesday, May 13th, 2009

At an event for local retailers this week, Bay Street Shoes president Darrel Besikof expressed dismay at the way customers today will brazenly pick up a full price item and shout out an offer. He gets offended. Frustrated. Even hurt. But sometimes, if the offer is reasonable, he’ll take it.
In this economy, Besikof says he either had to power up, or get out. He is building a brand new store at Calhoun Square, twice the size of the old one. It is expected to open in the fall.
