  1. Last time, Woolworths (Australia) sold the books at $23 but didn’t advertise the price before the day. They also had sufficiant stock that they didn’t sell out.

  2. What was the recommended retail price though? – edited by Neerav: the RRP is $AUS 45

  3. In 2003, Order of the Phoenix sold for $28 at Kmart at 9am, by noon, the price had been lowered to $22.

  4. According to The Times Online:

    Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has started a huge price war as shops sacrifice profit for market share … Supermarkets have the added bonus that readers are also likely to spend money on other products and will associate the shop with their favourite book … Supermarkets believe this so strongly that they are prepared to sacrifice millions in profits
