Bad experience in this shop

I went into this shop to buy a lovely craft mirror. The price was 1120 S and a discount price of 850 S was given with a final shipping price with insurance via Fed Ex to Australia of $US 424. They called the boss and agreed then 5 different shop persons appeared and argued and the price kept rising and rising. Finally the price went up to 1020S and in the end they said that the boss said that the shop staff would have to pay for the difference

in price if they sold it to me at the lower price despite having been given it by two different members of staff at two different times during the day . We spent hours in this shop trying to understand what the problem was and in the end none of the staff knew what they were doing. In the end they refused to sell it to me because as a tourist I made so much more money than them aand they were not going to make up their mistake. I told them that it was their boss that was making them pay the difference . They are unhelpful and have no training in assessing percentages or trying to work out FEDEX shipping. A very poorly run shop. Discraceful behaviour.
