Quote: Originally Posted by kelvinsense Even so, my second point still stands. I'm not denying the huge importance of the retail buyers but completely discrediting bargain shoppers is a bit of a stretch. No one is discrediting them. Every NBA championship team needs starters and bench/role players. MSRP payers are starters and bargain hunters would be the bench players. You need both to succeed and can't function without one or the...

Tip for you: Stay in school so you can learn something else instead of ad hominem arguments.

The fact is, a lot of people based their willingness...
Hong Kong has a lot of areas to shop for brand name items: Central - Landmark Causeway Bay - Times Square Tsim Sha Tsui - Harbor City Just be aware that you might be paying equal or more than what you would pay in the US.
