Colour me confused. I was after an external HDD today and naturally turned to PriceSpy for a decent price. I saw the Seagate Expansion Desktop Drive 3TB for $228.85 from PBTech which seemed a decent deal.

I walked to their store to pick one up and it was priced at $286.XX...

I asked if I could pick the unit up for the same price as their site had it for sale and was told $26X.XX was the best they could do.

What?

Surely the same product from the same store should be the same price, right? Or am I missing something?

Oh, I answered my own question by visiting their Facebook page.

Apparently they are run separately. Their site is http://pbwellington.co.nz/. Interesting.
