This position has been filled.
Ever since the Canadian dollar started hovering around parity with the greenback, consumers have been questioning why prices in Canada have remained so much higher. Retailers like J. Crew and Target have attracted harsh criticism (and disappointing sales results) for attempting to break into the Canadian market with notably higher prices. Have they simply been too greedy and priced themselves out of the market? Time will tell… quickly.
Pricing is a deeply psychological science. One must not only have a knowledge of the business, but a keen understanding of human behaviour. Beyond production costs and profit margins, pricing professionals need to think about how customers will perceive their product and what they will be willing to pay. As we have seen, the success of a company can hinge on the effectiveness of its pricing strategy.
