@piyo:  I got my Maggie Sottero dress for 530.  Granted, it was a display, but it was never tried on before (she doesn’t let anyone try on dresses in her store until they buy a dress, which is why her Yelp ratings are terrible).  But 530 sure beats the 1000 sticker price.

I’ve been able to negotiate 15% off, which seemed pretty good.  If they won’t budge on the price, it’s worth asking if they will include alterations or maybe a veil.  You can also save on tax if you ship it to another state.

I was able to negotiate a $1200 down to $600 because they were overcharging. I live in downtown Chicago, so I went to the HOB on Chicago, feel in love with a dress. I then called around to suburban storess who sold the dress and asked for a quote. When I got a good quote, I called HOB back and said, “I love the dress and would prefer to buy it from you, but I got a quote from XYZ store, which is just 30 minutes away, for $600. Can you match that?” They matched it and adjusted the price to account for the lower tax rate I would have paid.
