Bad Bureau en Gros (Staples)

The store manager at Bureau en Gros (Marche Centrale) must have bad hiring practices or just bad store policies. The sales guys there are not very helpful when trying to price match with other stores: "You need to bring a hard copy, we are not allowed to look it up here for you on the internet (even though it take a few seconds)". That's huge bull of course, other stores like Futureshop (at least sometimes, depending on the salesperson you get) and Bestbuy will price match after checking on the internet for you.

I smell commission hungry people or a lame store manager. Either way I was not going to buy the Acer Aspire One netbook there, since they wouldn't price match. That's also the last time I will go in that store....ever again.

I ended up going to the Bureau en Gros on Jean-Talon (near Victoria) where they price matched (and beat the price difference by 10%) without any hassles-like they should. So they got my Acer Aspire One netbook purchase, and any future business from me.

As written in their policy on the Staples website (I did not know this at the time, but now I do...More 100% pure bull from salesguys):
