A tale of shopping

Last week we were in Florida, Orlando for our family reunion, Boca Raton to recover. Before we left I bought New Balance walking shoes at the local Sports Mart outlet. The first pair were 50% off the regular $89, the second pair were a further 50% off, two pairs for just under $70.00. In Orlando my brother picked up a pair for $98.00. In Boca, in the New Balance Store, I checked them at $112.00 per pair. Since I was wearing mine, I asked the clerk the price. $112.00. Way to go Canada, Steve Jobs should have bought his shoes here!
