RE: West Marine won't price match Boater's World?

Can't speak for the Boater's World comparison. But when we recently replaced a macerator pump we needed it right away. West Marine had them in stock but at a considerably higher price than Defender. I called the nearest West Marine store and quoted their price match blurb on their website. I then told them about the Defender price and asked if they'd match it. The fellow said just a minute, and then came back and said yes, they would match the Defender price. I offered to bring in a printout of the Defender page with the pump and price and he said that wouldn't be necessary as he'd just looked it up online himself.

So it appears that West Marine does require a price comparison to come from a credible and fully operational supplier like Defender.
