Changes in Technology & Politics and their effect on Business
Gerald Aikens doesn’t mind a bit of haggling on the price of his used vehicles.
But the Pictou County dealer was bombarded with calls this month about the huge discounts he was purportedly offering on the Kijiji website.
“I think we had 20 or more calls in a short amount of time,” Aikens said Saturday. “We knew something was kind of funny.”
Aikens’ suspicions were confirmed when he started returning the calls. The first person, not surprisingly, was very interested in a 2007 vehicle, regularly priced at about $15,000, that apparently was on sale for $3,720.
