At work earlier this week a customer tried to talk down the price of a child’s wheelbarrow. He said that the price should come down because the wheelbarrow had been on display for a long time. His reasoning may have come from the fact that Spring just arrived, thinking that the wheelbarrow was left over merchandise from the past Spring. This, however, is not the case. We sell wheelbarrows year round. In fact that particular wheelbarrow had been on display only about a week, as the one displayed previously had been sold. When the customer was informed that the price would not be reduced, I asked him if he wanted to purchase the wheelbarrow. He said “no”. The customer remarked that a full-size wheelbarrow cost only $10.00 more. As the customer was leaving, I used the following analogy. Child-sized clothing, e.g. a pair of jeans, is priced only a bit less than similar type of clothing purchased for adults. The customer considered my analogy just a moment and said “You are right”. He, then, walked out the door.
