    The I-team in Chicago busted Circuit City for selling things higher at the closeout sale than in the stores that stayed open (back when only some stores were closing). They found stickers with one price on top of other stickers with lower prices. They jack the price and THEN they start the 20-70% off. When asked, the employees said the liquidation company controls everything. I expect the same thing at Ritz/Wolf.

    I went to mine, and there were no indications of a closing sale. It was one that was on that list too. The only sign they had in the window was one for a sale on print developing. I didnt go in since they were closed by the time I got there.

    There's a saying: "The military strips you of your God-given rights and gives them back to you as privileges."

    In the same token, Ritz raises the price on goods and presents them back to you as sale items. :squint:

    So mine finally had their going out of business sale. Went to check it out. They had exactly 2 lenses for Canon. A 75-300 and some other that I cant seem to remember. I walked in and the lady asked if she could help me. I told her I was just checking out what they had left. She asked me what gear I had so I told her.

    Her response: "Well you got a camera, a lens, a flash, and a bag so you're pretty much set."

    :ugh:
    It's no wonder they are going out of business.

    I went to one here in Vegas which doesn't appear to be closing. I asked him about the major differences between a D90 and a D300, he said "mostly the D90 does video, so that's better than the D300."

    They also wanted $1799 for the body only on the D300.
