    Visited a LFS in Centurion for the first time yesterday, as they were mentioned on the forum to see what they have in stock as far as hardware and fish go. I was surprised to see that they are selling the 300W Jager heaters for more that R500-00 :eek:. I think that is a rip off, as I have bought the same heater from another LFS for R275-00, and when I checked with them yesterday the price was still the same. That is a price difference of almost 82%. Just looking at the prices of the other hardware they stock, I don’t think I will be spending any money there real soon.

    I feel your pain, I work in centurion and if its the same store I'm thinking of they will never see me again. High prices and poor service in my opinion. It's a pity cause It would have made life easier for me and I would have spend alot of cash there but their prices are just too high in comparison to other stores.

    LOL
    Drive over the bridge and saw a LFS in centurion.
    Checked their tanks and the water params did not seem right.
    Checked the prices on livestock and fell over backwards!Twice the price as all the other lfses.
    So i thought ok,maybe the equipment will be better priced but.......
    Two to three times the going rate!!!!

    They will not get me as a customer,but i might refer people to them that want to buy birds.Aren't they noisy hey?

    Over the bridge? Selling birds? I don't think we're all talking about the same place...
    The one with the high prices has some brilliant stock though because they import thier own fish. I've always had good service, but I won't spend money on equipment there, they're just too expensive. Unfortunately for me, time and location does not permit me to buy livestock from the cheaper stores in the north of Pretoria :(
