An hour ago, a friend of mine sold his guitar case to Bookmans for $20. I immediately went there to see if I could buy it for $50(!), but Bookmans refused. Even tho' I told them I knew they had just bought it for $20, the pompous sales clerk INSISTED on $60 (plus tax). It was still sitting behind the counter. They hadn't even put it on display yet.
Also, recently, my wife received three very expensive books as a gift. Having no interest in the books, she sold them to Bookmans for the best price she could negotiate... $5 apiece for a total of $15. These virtually brand new books, published in 2010, had just been purchased for $180 retail.
I know that isn't exactly Startling Revelation, but imho, Bookmans (affectionately known by many as "CROOKmans") is the biggest ripoff out there.
