    You forgot that these very store owners were cheating people and govt of money for past 60-70 years by charging full MRP on items and not paying taxes fully. All the MNC's are wolves in another wolves territory. There are no hens here. If there were hens they would have closed their business without making such a fuss. They were losing their margins to online sellers who gave better quality stuff.

    Now you are left only with road side type useless quality products sold in shops at prices that don't make sense. Don't get anything in your locality because the nearby shops don't know or don't stock them? Bad luck. Suck it up now and compromise with the lowest common denominator type of goods which have higher margin than real quality goods.

    I agree with this part completely, seen my local friends who made fortunes out of same.
    (no regrests how they did, today they are crying since there expenses increased but not old profits)

    Some of my friends who didn't even had money to purchase a single Vaada-Paav !!! for a meal.
    Used to get bath with bISLERI.. (idiom).. fooling customers..

    Since I was only technical 20-30 years ago,
    They charged customers on MRP, products they actually got from distributors, just costed 200 bucks and sold upto 5K or more..
    None of customers had technical idea and completely believed in relations..
    (CORPORATES AS WELL)

    I completely agree on this statement from @6pack.
    --- Post Merged, Feb 5, 2019 ---
    After all, end-users in any area rural/urban is same till day..
    We get charged upto 200 bucks on mobile covers . Officially declared that this products costs 10 to 20 INR..

    There is a huge list.. Still today the same continues..
    Wolfs surely in HEN HOUSE.. All since day 1... (in any other way)

    In amazon pantry, they had even started to list the expiry/mfd date, which was so convenient, not to mention the cheaper price.
    Guess I have to go back to shopping in metro cash and carry, but will need 2 liters of petrol. Thanks current government, for making everyone lives easier.:rolleyes:

    Buddy, please, please stop with the goddamn bright huge text posts. You obviously don't understand forum posting etiquette, so let me make it clear, this kind of text is like shouting at someone. The bigger and brighter the text, the louder you are shouting. This shit is literally hurting my eyes.

    over a dozen sellers quitting Amazon can't be a news. I suppose this should be part of daily statistics.

    'Inability to manage logistics & returns' also sounds unreliable unless the sellers are absolutely new.
    in any case, this is not a news item at all.

    Considering the fact that he liked your post, does that mean he comprehends sarcasm, or that the point has COMPLETELY flown over his head?

    I think he is running a bot that likes random posts.
