Other stores are giving me a discount, why can't you do the same?

This is a difficult question for anyone working in this industry to have to answer. Ever since there are ads online offering fake Designer Gowns for a lower price and many stores that are struggling with this business, many are offered discount just to close a sale. However, we all must still pay our rent and expenses to run our business. If a store is not getting their profits, they must get it somewhere, like higher alteration fee, shipping fee, etc. So, in the end the customers are still paying for the full price eventually, but just not aware of it until after they add the numbers up. Like the old saying goes, "If it sound too good to be true, it is usually not true."
