Things That Make You Wonder

It's really funny how our business works sometimes.
Like on a sale, how is an advertised discount calculated? 
And more importantly is it honest and fair? 
Just got a flyer this week from a supplier offering some glass at 30% off. 
Wow! Big saving, right?
But let's look closer-
The glass that's on sale is a line that was discontinued well over a year ago. When glass prices were lower.
So, is it 30% off that price from over a year ago? On this discontinued glass.
Or is it based on glass prices today for a different line? 
Seems it is.
Makes you wonder...
