We can’t process every piece of price information thrown our way. So we judge a store’s prices based on a handful of products we know well. Grocers have recognized this for decades, which is why they keep the price of eggs and milk consistently low, making their profits on other goods whose markups we don’t notice as easily.
Pop in to one of our stores, take a table outdoors in Eat Street, or wander the artisanal food market, and you will see the way friends hail friends, and friends of friends. You will find no trace here of the big city frown. It’s not as if Ballito folks have all the time in the world – they’re business owners, deal makers and parents, too. The difference lies in the value they attach to family, community, and making the most of their beautiful surroundings.
Stein Mart – 263 stores in 30 states, excluding the North and Northwestern states. Merchandise includes current-season, moderate-to-designer brand-name fashion for women and men, accessories, home décor, linens and shoes, at prices 20% to 60% below department stores and specialty shops. Store atmosphere tends to be somewhat more upscale than some of the other off-price retailers.
So here’s a question for you: why don’t more folks buy their clothes through online shopping? Is it because they need to try them on before they buy anything? Or is it because they are unaware of some of the cool sites out there that offer an amazing selection of popular clothes? It’s probably a mix of both.
Many of the things I’ve been buying lately have either been a little too large or a little too small – this top is just perfect – whether I want to tuck it in or wear it over my bottoms. It is made of a very soft fabric and fits just right. There isn’t anything that I’ve found displeasing about this particular top and I may be going back to see what other colors I’ve missed now that I know the feel and fit of this wonderful top! The only thing that could make this perfect is finding it on clearance soon!!

In retrospect, retailers were slow to mobilize. Even as other corporate functions—logistics, sales-force management—were being given the “moneyball” treatment in the early 2000s with powerful predictive software (and even as airlines had fully weaponized airfares), retail pricing remained more art than science. In part, this was a function of internal company hierarchy. Prices were traditionally the purview of the second-most-powerful figure in a retail organization: the head merchant, whose intuitive knack for knowing what to sell, and for how much, was the source of a deep-seated mythos that she was not keen to dispel.
Guru Hariharan uncapped a dry-erase marker in a conference room at Boomerang’s headquarters in Mountain View, California. He was talking about what had led retailers to this desperate place where it’s necessary to change prices multiple times a day. On a whiteboard, he drew a series of lines representing the rising share of online sales for various kinds of products (books, DVDs, electronics) over time, then marked the years that major brick-and-mortar players (Borders, Blockbuster, Circuit City and RadioShack) went bankrupt. At first the years looked random. But the bankruptcies all clustered within a band where online sales hit between 20 and 25 percent. “In this range, there’s a crushing point,” Hariharan said, clapping his hands together for emphasis. “There’s a bloodbath happening.”
