My FLGS (more like LGS), is charging over $6 per booster pack. Is this legal/allowed per FFG? I know game stores are allowed to sell whatever they want for whatever price. But I know certain companies have a contract with their distributors and stores, that for stores to be allowed to sell FFG products, they agree to certain pricing conditions. Anyone else have this problem? Anyone know of any recourse action?

Thanks

I doubt there is any recourse because it isn't technically illegal. Now unethical....that's a different story.

I have a pretty good relationship with my LGSs and none of them would do this but if they did I'd politely let them know that although they have a right to sell at whatever price they want, in doing so they have lost potential sales from me. Then I'd stop buying product from them and buy it likely much cheaper from amazon/CSI/MM etc.

Unfortunately there is very little the LGS can do to make this situation any better.

If they sell at MSRP, they will be gone in a day and probably end up on ebay a few hours later by the person who bought them. Probably for more than $6 as well..

If it were up to me I would like to see packs be sold in events. Say $18 for 6 boosters, and random drawings for buying additional packs throughout the night.

They have the right to sell it for whatever price they want...the same as you have the same right to take your money elsewhere and tell them to pound sand.
