Its because of the National. Just like gas prices go up before Memorial Day and Labor Day, boy prices are going up because of the National. Prime cuts up over 50%, National Treasures too, Finest. All of the increases are inexplicable and this is the only way to describe it. Is it so Blowout and DA can sell a bunch by reducing their prices. Its like when you go to a liquidation sale and you notice that the signs say 40% off but they are more expensive then when the store was in business.
Circuit City did this. MSRP is $1000, Regular price was $699 but you could get it for $599. Now the store is 25% off everything and the price is $750. Just a thought.
