CAMERA TALK AT SIM LIM SQUARE OVERCHARGED CUSTOMER AND REFUSED TO REFUND

Was in a rush in the evening, to buy flims for my next week company Christmas party.

The sales staff offered me $78 and as always I tried to bargain for a lower price. The Sales staff gave a frown and agreed to let go at a $70 price, other sales staff came in and asked why is it not sold at $75? Before I left the mall, I went to another shop to double check if I had a good deal, to my surprise, it was $39.90. Went back to the shop and asked for a refund 5 minutes apart, the salesman refuse to do a refund and acted aggressively, after a I threaten to report him to CASE, he told me to wait and he will talk to his "Boss". He came back and offered a $20 refund, and wouldn't offer any more than that.
