2. Stores can quite often charge different prices for the same product.
3. Some stores are almost calamitous in terms of service with poor staff who are just too busy. They can come across as a bit amateur. One time I had to wait 30 minutes for a guy to cut some speaker wire.
4. Website is poor but improving. Buying off the internet is easier on other sites.
Think they used to be big supporters of Viz too. Has to be a huge plus. Not comparing AV to Viz, thoughbut. Just saying...RS are one of the very rare breed that have an active participation on this forum & have been keen to step in when things have gone wrong. If you don't want the enhancements they offer & can buy cheaper elsewhere, I'm not sure what the issue is - just buy elsewhere...
They knocked £1100 off my TV and it'd only just been released!!!
Fantastic delivery experience of the TV too. Felt like they'd delivered a Van Gogh the care they took over it and the process.
They also knocked 10% off all of the other items I bought alongside it.
Then when I'd set it all up the salesman I'd dealt with visited me to see it all up and running and gave me a free 4K Bluray.
Our corporate discount used to be 30% off TVs... can't see them selling them to us at a loss
I've heard lots of good about RS from family and on here.
I was interested in one of their TV's as they have it lower than everywhere else and with an excellent 6yr guarantee.
Just my luck that the one TV I want to buy has to be done over the phone, which I don't feel comfy with at all. I'll be waiting a few weeks to see if it will become available over the website. If not it will have to be somewhere else.
The friendly customer service replied quickly to my enquiry as to why I can't order via the website and they said it's a " Special order "
After closer inspection on the site it says " Stock erratic - Call for info/alternative "
Could they be playing it like that so that I cannot pricematch RS as most places only pricematch items which are available online.
If they could afford to knock £ 1100 off a new TV, it means their ticket price was massively inflated.
Electricals margins are not generous - sub 10% isn't uncommon, so if they did that much discount it means they were either over-priced or took a huge loss, neither of which are good business.
The simple fact is a lot of modern movies try to cram in WOKE nonsense and gender politics and all that jazz which effectively ruins the movies. Nearly all my top movies are from 70's and 80's and what they all have in common is well written stories, well edited, directed and scored with great actors and no WOKE moments or trying to appease to the Chinese or inappropriate gender politics.
Got example in Jaws 3 white men went out in the boat. Not 2 men, one black, and 1 Asian woman as it would be today unfortunately.
