Online shopping is certainly convenient and economical, but many people prefer to buy locally, if possible. With that in mind, below are local brick-and-mortar retailers who will match the prices of online retailers:
- Bivouac sells a "unique mix of Men’s and Women’s clothing and gear." They will match all competitors prices including mail order and internet offers! To get the price match, email email@example.com with the subject PRICE MATCH. Include the item number you want to purchase as well as the size and color. Also include where you found the item for cheaper (store name or internet URL). When approved, they will email you back a coupon code which will adjust the price of the item you want to purchase.
- Elephant Ears, is a family-owned and operated children’s store located in Kerrytown that sells children’s clothing sized from infant to teen, and everything you might need to raise your child from cribs to car seats. I couldn't find the details of their price match guarantee, but they mention it on their home page.
Big Box stores that will match online prices
- Best Buy offers what they call their "Low Price Guarantee." According to the website, this only applies to qualifying products, but they're not clear on what qualifies and what doesn't.
Lowe's website says, "We guarantee our everyday competitive prices. If you find a lower everyday price on an identical item at a local retail competitor, just bring us the competitor's current ad, and we'll beat their price by 10%." Reports are that actually getting store personnel to give you that discount might be a hassle, though.
