QUOTE (alastairq @ 7 Mar 2009, 10:44) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>if a ''local'' one that the OP frequents regularly, is selling at what is considered an 'inflated '' price, perhaps an attempt at 'bargaining''..or making a reduced offer, might be in order?

ie..expressing a keen interest in an item....but being quite clear that one cannot afford ''that price''....and asking how much the shop keeper is prepared to drop his price for you to afford the item, etc etc.....

for a regular customer, a negotiated price is sometimes forthcoming?

It truly is. Can't forget the first time we did shopping in a Nurnberg model rail shop. I bought about 500 euros worth of train related items. At the counter, its in the blood, I said; ok now whats the discount you are going to give us? The gentleman went back and returned with a Roco Taiga Trommel diesel and handed over and said; here is your discount. Was worth 98 euros at that time.
