Sales and Deals

Pricing and discounts: Generally, pricing is normally based on the current manufacturer’s catalog. Engine House Hobbies does not normally move the volume of products warranting discount pricing on all merchandise. Of course, there are always those slow moving items sitting on the shelf with an old catalog price.
.
Discounts are routinely offered and used in several ways at Engine House Hobbies. Discounts are used to move products, on individual volume/quantity purchases, for catalog pre-orders and to reward loyalty. Discounts are also frequently offered on mail order sales over $100 to help offset shipping costs.
.
It is fully expected that the buyer will surf the web for the cheapest price available. Depending on the item, and at the discretion of the proprietor, cheaper prices may be met with the presentation of evidence of posted regular pricing of a competitor (such as a website address or ad). But, it should be expected that costs will be recovered unless it is a clearance or discontinued item. Items will not be sold less than dealer costs to meet the advertised price of others.
.
Specials: Specials are posted and available from time to time. Closeout specials are items which the store will no longer carry and are reduced in price to move the item. Some items are greatly reduced in price whereas others may only have a nominal reduction. Prices may be negotiable within reason. From time to time, some closeout items are posted on the web under “sales and deals”page.
.
Make an offer items: (In store service) “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” Make an offer items are items which in the eye of some are not useable under normal circumstances or in the way the item was designed to be used. However, there are many creative uses for what others may call junk, or at least not useful. Many of them find their way onto a model train layout. These items are unpriced but may contain former pricing or prices of such an item purchased new, if such prices are available. The actual sale price is negotiable and any sale starts with the buyer suggesting what they would like to pay for the item or what they think it is worth. We may counter offer as appropriate.
