Argh!!!! Wanted to go buy a new point and shoot yesterday. Picked out the one I wanted online, and checked to see what stores sold them. Two Harvey Norman's and two JB Hi-Fi's later, I managed to get it from Teds Cameras who thankfully price-matched to the cheaper price.
Useless sales staff who pretty much said 'we don't have it' and didn't offer to phone other stores, order it in, show me a similar model etc.
No wonder people are turning their backs on Australian bricks and mortar stores and buying online from overseas. The only reason that stopped me from buying online was the fact that I needed it by next weekend and it wouldn't have arrived in time even though it would have been $100 less, and I wouldn't have had to have left the house. (Plus I actually wanted to check it out first, but guess I could have ordered it online after seeing it at the store)
