Who Control’s Pricing? Can you discount?

dimeIn the United States, resale price maintenance (RPM) is illegal under current U.S. Antitrust laws. In Japan, the Fair Trade Commission’s ordered Seven-Eleven Japan to end its refusal to allow franchise stores to discount bento boxed meals and other food items when the food is close to expiration. This will force all convenience store chains in Japan to review their policy of fixed prices for such products.Hat Tip: Chris Conner @ FranCorp’s Blog
