The slashed prices you see on-site are the original suggested manufacturer or supplier prices. In some instances, the crossed-out price is based on what a comparable item – determined by our experienced buyers – may be sold for at retail stores, including specialty or department stores and other non-discount sellers. For items that are sold in a set – like cookware and cutlery – the crossed-out price may reflect the total value of all the items included.
Note: Because we sell our merchandise over the Internet on a national and international basis, the crossed-out price may not always represent the prevailing price in any particular location or at any particular time. Since original prices often fluctuate in the market, the crossed-out price should be one point of reference of an item's value.
