I don't have an axe to grind with the folks who run it but I can't say I appreciate the game.

They advertise that they are discounting their usual prices or that they are variously having a 'store closing' sale or some variation of all this. I have bought from both them and their competitors since the day they opened.

If you look at the prices they have repriced everything, and I do mean everything, in the store to higher prices on the tag. The same bottle of wine that was 14.99 is not 15.99. Figure the discount in and you're only back to the regular price.

I understand that things haven't worked out for them and that they need to pay bills. But a little honesty would be a plus. I won't be going back again. I'm very disappointed in them for playing games like this. Peel the stickers back and see for yourselves.

Nearly every place that goes out of business does this. Circuit City did it. Raise prices only to offer the illusion of big discounts. Get's people in the door.

Circuit City wasn't a locally owned company.

This may sound awful but I sort of expect corporate amerikka to stick it to the consumer which is one of the reasons I make every attempt to trade at local businesses. That is, until they start doing things like this.

Plenty of other choices in Covington, already taking my business there. Not going to mourn this one closing.

I understand your argument and agree with your thoughts on buying locally, but both local and national companies engage in jacking prices up for the discount when closing shop.
