Ok in the sense of fairness, challenge and fun. Tommorow I just happen to be in the area. I'll stop into Outdoor World and get a price just to be current
on a small Mercury outboard. I'll take that price to the mighty Flagship store off of Federal and 84. If they match the price you'll get my apologies for disparaging WM. But if they refuse, you get me the point value at WM that I spent at Outdoor World.
Ok, I can rightly be called many unflattering things, but I can man up and admit when I'm wrong. Harry, I did as I said I would and went by Outdoor World and WM today. I checked my WM catalog this morning before I left and priced a 9.9 Mercury 4 stroke
model 5326871 and it shows a current
price of $2,199 When I first went to Outdoor World and saw their price on a 9.9 I thought for sure I had you. Then I went to WM and talked to two girls behind the customer service
counter. I asked them to match ODW price, they got on the phone
to the powers that be and ten minutes later they said no problem. Now here's the good part for anyone interested in a new 9.9 Merc ODW sells the same one for $1,715. I said are you sure? They said we have two in stock you want them both? Man that's a $500 price reduction match. And they said you will also get the WM credits where ODW won't credit your account points for any boat or motor
sales. So Here's my official hat in hand apology to WM
Just for general info WM will also sell their 4hp Merc for $150 less the asking price and the 6hp Merc for $200 less the listed price. So hurra for WM for changing their policy right after I bought mine (sour grapes) and they might be getting more of my larger business soon.
