Only kidding - I think. However I have just seen in the clearance section of 7dayshop a roll of HIE for £17.99 - That's one roll only mind! Only a week or so ago it was just under £11.00. I was even thinking of buying one, just to get the experience of it, never having used it.
Not now - not ever at that price. When it was a regular stock item it was about £7.50 and probably expensive at that.
Clearly 7dayshop have judged the marketplace as supporting £17.99 a roll. Well it has misjudged things in my case and I suspect a lot other cases as well. If I am right watch out for large decreases in price as it faces being left with stock that has a limited use by date.
Just academic curiosity but I wonder what price Kodak would have needed to keep HIE profitable - less than £18.00(say $34) a roll I suspect.
What, if any comparable price hikes have you U.S. APUGers seen?
No doubt 7dayshop would argue that rationing on price is as good a way of ensuring that only those most in need get the product. It might be right and it does have the other beneficial effect of providing an effective "cold turkey " cure to those of us who need to be spared any mourning for HIE's passing.
I have managed to wipe away my tears already
