I've already written about the problems of Angus and Robertson and pointed to their practice of overpricing books. This is a practice that I'm sure has had a significant part in their financial troubles.
Why would anyone order or buy a book from them when their price is far higher than other book sellers?
I've just come across a very clear example. I recently ordered a book about New Zealand artist Colin McCahon. My order was with the book depository who are selling the book for $43.00 (post free). I have since seen the same book being sold on fishpond.com for $37.69 (reduced from $66.99).
And what is Angus & Robertson's online price?
Need I say more?
