Price Comparisons, "Original Price" and "Your Savings".
Price comparisons may be made throughout the site to indicate the relative savings amounts of our pricing. "Original Price" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our suppliers. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the original price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Because we sell our merchandise over the internet on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at the original price in any particular location or at any particular time. "YOUR SAVINGS" reflects the difference between our price and the supplier provided original price shown on our sites. Because the original price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount and may want to make an exact comparison for yourself by checking the prices of other internet or local retailers prior to making a purchase.
