Yeah sorry, Future Shop practices were questionable before Best Buy bought them out. Once they did 99% of the stuff they carried were identical with maybe one or two things differing between them in each apartment. Surprised this didn't happen before.
One of my early jobs was working in a Business Depot and we heard and (I personally) experienced some of the crap they were pulling. An example was I had the floor model of a computer for sale and had a customer come in. He seemed interested and was going to but it but had to go move money. I promised I would hold it for him, about half hour later some guy shows up interested and really wanted to buy it (like pressuring to sell it). Told him no, other guy comes back and buys it. While later I was in Future Shop and lo and behold who do I see working there but the guy who came in after. Figure he was trying to buy it so that the guy would come back and buy his model and then return it. Not sure but this was before Best Buy bought them out.
Anyone remember Futile Shop?
