Here is where I stand on this. We are not in a crisis: period. The store isn't charged more from their supplier today so why am I charged more? Why would I frequent a store that is willing to treat me like that? BTW, I'm not in a crisis either; I have plenty of supplies because I do prep. It is not my job to keep his employees employed. If they keep the prices too high the item will stay on the shelf and it won't keep anybody employed.So do you equate "sticking it to you" to them just wanting to find a price point where they can keep something in stock and keep their employees employed?
