I have found Mecca's service to be excellent. I have used them at Chadstone and the Myer store in Melbourne.
The rest of the service at Myer is terrible. DJ's, not too bad.
If I am getting good service, generally, I will buy from the store even though I know I can get it cheaper online.
A few weeks ago, I nearly bought some Caron from the Myer city store, but decided not to, as I didn't think the bottle was worth the $160+ (can't remember the exact price). Last night, I bought the same bottle, with GST included, from the Grays online outlet for $47.
I don't get why we have to pay soooo much more than our USA friends, when our $$$$ has more value than the US$. The GST does not account for the huge difference in prices. USA has to pay to import the products, just as the Aussie importers do.
So why do we get ripped on everything? It is not just fragrances......A $36,000 motorcycle here in Oz, costs less than $20,000 in the USA.......Why?
