Clearly you have never been a retail store owner. If you only knew what overhead, payroll, taxes, permitting, advertising, marketing & a score of other costs their were to maintain that business and keep it open, so you the public can come in and browse, you would be mindful enough to know their profit margins are typically less than 10%.

If you can get it cheaper elsewhere, then move on and go get it. Don't take it out on the retailer by questioning them or complaining about it.

What's really not nice is people complaining about a retailer when they have no vested interest in the business, but think the retailer has to drop their prices just to make you happy.

Maybe she was saying "Is that really the price" meaning she couldn't believe how LOW the price was -- then the merchant said, "I can charge more if you want." In which case your reply makes no sense.
