A market yes, or any kind of second hand/ reselling retail environment, but I don't think you could walk into a shoe shop and do it (to use your example)..maybe if they were having a sale.
Of course. Tightly maintained stock inventory and info pretty much stop this from happening.
My town used to be a lot smaller so there was no franchised shops so to speak. Everyone knew everyone, so you were basically chatting to someone who had the only one of two shoe shops in town. So they probably knew you and your people. Though in saying that I know a guy that works in currys for example, and even though it's a big retailer, I'd be like "here you can fire a tenner or a twenty off that big lad". They have a certain amount of discount they can give. Plus I found, the more you buy the better chance you have to get a discount.
