    When buying a knife listed on The Bay's wedding registry for one of my relatives, I checked the price at The Bay then at Walmart. The Bay wanted $150, Walmart wanted $30, for the exact same knife.

    It seems foolish to buy a store that solely relies on fools willing to pay 5x as much as they need to. Is there some magical element of The Bay that I'm just not aware of?
