Companies like General Motors found an up-front way of recovering some of the lost profit. In the 1920s, GM aligned its various car brands into a finely graduated price hierarchy: “Chevrolet for the hoi polloi,” Fortune magazine put it, “Pontiac … for the poor but proud, Oldsmobile for the comfortable but discreet, Buick for the striving, Cadillac for the rich.” The policy—“a car for every purse and purpose,” GM called it—was a means of customer sorting, but the customers did the sorting themselves. It kept the truce.
The Quakers—including a New York merchant named Rowland H. Macy—had never believed in setting different prices for different people. Wanamaker, a Presbyterian operating in Quaker Philadelphia, opened his Grand Depot under the principle of “One price to all; no favoritism.” Other merchants saw the practical benefits of Macy’s and Wanamaker’s prix fixe policies. As they staffed up their new department stores, it was expensive to train hundreds of clerks in the art of haggling. Fixed prices offered a measure of predictability to bookkeeping, sped up the sales process, and made possible the proliferation of printed retail ads highlighting a given price for a given good.

He’s not joking. “It’s like something out of a horror movie,” says Maribeth Gantt, 37, a mother of four who visited the mall recently. “I got nervous when I walked in, like I’m waiting for a guy to jump out at me.”

Unlike the massive, windowless 800,000 square foot suburban malls anchored by a discount or department store like Target (Research) or Sears (Research), lifestyle centers tend to be smaller, around 50,000 square feet. They’re often open-air venues — like a cute little village — and are devoid of an anchor store.
It didn’t take long for thousands of acres of farmland to be converted into massive centers for buying stuff, surrounded by blacktop–“pyramids to the boom years,” the writer Joan Didion called them. Their construction was helped along by the Interstate Highway System and enormous commercial investments aided by changing tax laws. The white flight from cities during the 1960s and ’70s assured a customer base (and further isolated those left behind in city centers).
This was an experience replicated around the country from a single archetype: Southdale Center in Edina, Minn. Opened in 1956, it was the brainchild of Austrian architect Victor Gruen, a socialist appalled by American sprawl he described as “avenues of horror.”

A very little thing you hav too do is read the terms before u purchase and follow the policy conditions…and just drop a mail or fill a form to exchange or return and your problem will be resolved soon if it is with in the criteria…..
Then economists realized that they could go a step further and design experiments that produced data. Carefully controlled experiments not only attempted to divine the shape of a demand curve—which shows just how much of a product people will buy as you keep raising the price, allowing retailers to find the optimal, profit-maximizing figure. They tried to map how the curve changed hour to hour. (Online purchases peak during weekday office hours, so retailers are commonly advised to raise prices in the morning and lower them in the early evening.)
