Not as bargain as you think

Make SURE you know what things are worth before walking in there to buy something. The liquidators pump the prices way up and then "discount" from there. Those liquidation sales are usually for suckers.

Also, there will be no refunds or returns so inspect your merchandise thoroughly before putting money down.

Ritz is the most overpriced camera store ever, so even if they knock 40% off, the prices would be close to what online dealers sell it for.

Also, the people who work there, more often than not, have no idea what they're talking about. It's a camera store designed more for point and shoot camera sales than it is for pro's or semi-pro's.

I went to one a year ago when I was looking at D3's and the salesman wouldn't even let me hold it unless I agreed to buy it. Needless to say, I laughed as I walked out and wondered how they ever stayed in business.
