Big box retailers feeling the pressure from soft sales are now resorting to the age-old tactic of haggling which is almost universally not an accepted practice in the American retail world.
“We want to work with the customer, and if that happens to mean negotiating a price, then we’re willing to look at that,” said Kathryn Gallagher, a spokeswoman for Home Depot.
In the last year, she said, the store has adopted an “entrepreneurial spirit” campaign to give salespeople and managers more latitude on prices in order to retain customers.
Remember this when you start purchasing for your remodel or addition.
