Now one might think that a truly competitive operation would want to have better prices and service than an equally reputable retailer? Why would I try for an "if we can we will.", when I already have the price in hand, at an equally reputable retailer?
Ok, for example. There is a very reputable photographic store in Canada. We nevertheless may not match their prices because we would be offering a US warranty.
Or, if an equally reputable company offers a product at $150 less than we do but doesn't actually have it in stock at that moment in time.
Or the Internet behemoth that has fulfilment centers in 12 US States, PLUS, 3 locations in Canada, 4 locations in Scotland, 5 in England, 3 in Wales, 5 in France, 4 in each of Germany and Japan, 3 in China, and 1 in each of Slovakia and Italy, whose operations are subsidized by investors who care only about growth.
If we were in a position to subsidize the prices of products by selling stock, we would potentially also be able to provide twice the product for half the price. However, Adorama is a family business in NYC with a single distribution center in New Jersey! - and which cares deeply about offering personal support and service to the photographers who buy from us.
BTW we will also do our best to match shipping
