MONDAY, OCTOBER 29: Gibbons Company is making a big bid to lure customers through its doors with its Price Match Guarantee programme.

This will allow customers to receive a price match on any item found anywhere for a better price.

Paula Clarke, Gibbons Company CEO, said in a press release: “You find a better price, we’ll match it. We are confident in the product, price, value and service we offer, and believe in our buyers’ ability to source and price a wide range of products.”

Gibbons Company will match the price of an identical product for purchase anywhere – locally or overseas. Customers should visit the Price Match Guarantee centre at Gibbons Company with proof of the identical product and Gibbons Company will simply verify for a price match.

Mrs Clarke said: “We want to provide our customers with a convenient shopping experience, right here at home.

“It is possible to find great products at competitive prices locally. Once you figure in the cost of shipping fees and charges, the overall cost of the item becomes less affordable and less convenient than buying locally.”

The Price Match Guarantee is effective this holiday season through December 20.

Items considered for price matching must be the same size, colour and dimension.

When comparing items from overseas the customer must produce a current and valid price of identical item with a quote from a local courier or shipper that represents the true landed cost in Bermuda. The quote must include the following: price of the item, sales tax, inland shipping to US delivery address, duty on the items, shipping charges to Bermuda, fuel adjustment charge, wharfage, insurance charges to Bermuda and any other charges.

When comparing locally, the customer has seven days to come in and get a price adjustment.

The offer does not include Black Friday sales, early bird sales specials or door buster deals; oods from auction or price bidding web sites; perfume, cosmetics, MAC, food, wine, Kuerig coffee machines. Coffee and nail services; goods carried back to Bermuda or bulk purchases.
