In this survey there were an inordinate number of multiple votes with a comment that indicated anger and/or frustration.  We counted only one vote whether No or Yes. 

 Multiple voting .... hmmmm.  You can express your opinion easily in the comments without trying to influence the vote one way or another.  Most people just vote and don't comment.


Absolutely not. If the price isn't right for you, you always have the opportunity to shop elsewhere.

Are you kidding?Not in this town, merchants will tell you to go buy out of town, if you want less than ticket price!

Certainly not!!  Our local retailers are NOT running flea markets or garage sales...it would be an insult to do so.

How annoying!

I don't care

I live here and know the merchants and they too must make a living. I am sure that they do get city people haggling and wanting things for nothing.  Too bad.

If its more than I want to pay I just leave.

If you have to haggle to get a better price for something, you are one of those people who are cheap and don't look at the other side of the coin where the retailer is trying to make a living by keeping his prices reasonable while also having to pay high expenses to remain in business.

It cost money to have merchandize available. How do people think  this happens? There are wages, shipping, rent,utilities,insurance and above all the actural cost of items that we purchase. Its a privilege to be able to shop in a store.

No I do not haggle with anyone, I use to work retail and customers are rude and ignorant blaming the cashier for everything that is wrong with the price. Every customer should be a cashier.

Our local businesses and retailers are such a vital part of our community and overwhelmingly supportive of service clubs and fundraising events. It is unconcionable to try to lessen their profits that they are so generous with.C.Heizer

Small business owners have a hard enough time making ends meet - I trust that they have priced their product fairly.
