I am as guilty as the next person for shopping out of town, but when we have stores in town like Rona and Sears it pays to go in and ask them about price matching. I found an item online for a product that Rona sells and went into the store and asked about price matching and they did it no problem. I just showed them the copy of the item from somewhere else and that was all it took.
I was at Sears in Chilliwack during scratch and save and instead of buying an item down there and saving $20, I went to Sears here in Hope and Maureen saved me over $100 on the same item.
Don’t be embarrassed about asking for price matching. You can save money and buy local.
