    I read this and think its a great idea.
    I mostly buy my stuff from Richer Sounds.

    Very knowledgeable staff who have time to answer questions and provide demos etc.

    Imagine if Apple did this. Plenty of 8 year olds could be in line for a 4 grand payout. :p

    really impressed with this good on him!!!

    Ive used RS quite a few times in the last 15 or so years since I moved to London especially. After reading that I will make more of an effort to go to them in the future

    Yeah but they are 8 years old AND geniuses remember! Oh wait I get it now, you mean the slave labour :) I was going with the idiots who work in the shops who have the mental capacity of an 8 year old.

    the 15% of profits to charity is interesting ...

    but moreover, how are their finances ? since some of the john lewis problems are atttributed to their price matching strategy.

    google threw this up on first page - so his sale may not be completely ultruisitic ?

    private company I guess so we have no profit info.

    John Lewis have big shops in high-rent locations. Their overheads will be far in excess of Richer Sounds', making their price matching more damaging to their bottom line.
