Is that sale only this weekend?

WOW...70% OFF. Impressive. Especially for Kastles.

I guess that is undoubtedly a relatively good deal, but I'm curious, at 70% off, (MSRP, I guess?), is the shop losing money selling at that price?

Might have been only yesterday, Sam said it was a spur of the moment decision. I dont remember whether he said all weekend or not.

But really......she knew that her words would fall on deaf ears.

How bad is it that I have about 10 sites in a folder with a link to Volkl Kendos and I open it once a day to see if I can find anything less than $350? You guys are instigators, you know? :D

$500 total for both pairs? That's pretty impressive. Even if that's per ski, $500 for a pair of new Kastle's isn't bad. I don't know retail on the Rossis so have no idea on that count. 

 

I bought two pairs of skis from the same shop a few years ago, but none for me- they were a pair of S7W's for the wife and a pair of Black Pearls for the sister.

Yes that was for both pairs and I later bought a pair of Blizzard Peacemakers and a Griffon binding...out the door for all 3 pairs and the pair of bindings was $805 plus tax.   I feel like I stole something but that store has made a mint off me over the last  6 years with two girls in a race program and as my main supplier (dealer;)) .  

 

 I hope they do this sale every July 4th weekend:D.    I thought I went nuts buying skis till I met the guy who bought 8 pairs of ski from them....wonder what his wife said...hopefully she's a gear freak.  They had to lose money on all that stuff but now they have room to bring in all the new stuff for next year.

They do the Firecracker sale every 4th of July weekend.  

post #24 of 24

I walked into a thrift store last week and walked out with these. They are a few years old.

Brand spankin new, my size, $20, no tax.
