It all started with $19.99, then $19.98. The state of the art is now $19.94 ... I still can't even phantom the power.

Even so, I was going to have the audacity to submit my revolutionary $19.93 price tag idea... but even that's not enough the only way to put this to bed is with a $19.RANDOM price tag.... $19.34 , $19.56, $19.01 ... most items in the store will all have different slightly random price.

With 100 numbers to choose from, it will take a very long time for consumers to get habituated. And before they do, the sales will rocket way up. Even $19.99 items will be hot sellers. After all, everyone loves nostalgia.

       How is the random number generated?   

       What statistical methods will be used to ensure an even spread of the different values?   

       What degree of tolerance will be permitted per unit, line, aisle, shop, region, product, time period?

       If you have degrees of tolerance you're not truly random. It must be possible, however unlikely, to have all items in a given store at $19.95

       Right but true randomness is an immpossibility isn't it?

       Yes but on a smaller scale than that.

       Sale! $19.00 even!
