Perfect Price|قیمت عالی


“195th story”

There lived two brothers in a city. They had a shop full of suits for men.

Adam the older brother was responsible to stay near the door and with a great welcoming technique bring the customer into the store.

Aziz was the younger brother whose job was to show different suits to the customer and make them fall in love with it.

The two brothers had a unique strategy and a secret way for making sure the customer won’t leave the store, empty handed.

And the technique was; when the customer loved a suit, Aziz yelled to Adam: “How much is the black suit?”

Adam: “Which one?”

And Aziz described the suit, then Adam yelled the price: “$850.00”

Aziz pretended that he didn’t hear, then asked again: “How much?”

Adam: “$850.00”

And Aziz tells the customer: “$550.00”

The customer heard the $850.00 and thinks that Aziz couldn’t hear correctly. The great opportunity shines and the good price makes him buy the suit with no hesitation. The customer buys the $250.00 suit for $550.00 and runs out of the brothers store very happy.

And the brother’s great business runs very well and grows very fast.

Don’t we see these tricks every day in our lives?

Sometimes we realize, and often we don’t.

  2. What another wonderful teaching story! Honestly, i have also some own experiences in this. To me, it’s still amazing, how people buy by price but not pay attention to quality. Thank you, Laleh! Enjoy a wonderful rest of the week! Please stay save! Michael xx

  3. The brothers are smooth and the customers are careless. If the price tag is on the suit (which I am guessing it is not), I’m surprised the customers do not demand a refund. Fun story nonetheless.

  9. Lying in business is a common occurrence. Man is greedy, greedy and always wants more. Whatever he has, he still has little. He buys things, objects, although he could do without them.

  11. Thank you for sharing!!…the brother’s may celebrate at the moment, but it could very well come back to haunt them and they could pay a price far greater that the cost of the suit… especially with today’s technology and knowledge… “I have a greater peace of mind by being straightforward and truthful, with open heart and mind, knowing the outcome being uncertain, rather than to wake up tomorrow morning and have to deal with a falsehood I told yesterday.” (Larry “Dutch” Woller )….

    Until we meet again..
    May flowers always line your path
    and sunshine light your way,
    May songbirds serenade your
    every step along the way,
    May a rainbow run beside you
    in a sky that’s always blue,
    And may happiness fill your heart
    each day your whole life through.
    (Irish Saying)

  12. In the end, no one is truthful. The buyer and the seller, both were liars in this story. A different take, enjoyed reading this.
