Asking the prices in clothes shops

I was in the Michael Kors shop today. I was browsing the shoes and saw that none of them had any prices on - I checked a load of pairs, and there were no prices on any of them.

Some pairs had a discreet "-30%" sticker on the sole (shops like that don't like you to know that they have sales, in my experience, in case you think that they are, you know, cheap).

I don't mind spending on good shoes (as Joan Collins said, always have a good bed and good shoes, because if you're not in one, you're in the other) but I was so annoyed with them for not displaying prices that I wouldn't ask an assistant. I didn't want to put myself through asking and them (1) telling me the price with a sympathetic face in case they thought I was too poor to buy them or (2) hanging around me, trying to push me into trying them on and buying them.

What is their deal? All the clothes and bags had prices on them. Including a polyester dress ambitiously priced at £149.

Reminds me of that shop Voyage, in the 90s, where you apparently had to ring a bell for admittance and none of the clothes had prices on!

No idea but I never buy from any shop which can't be bothered to display a price.

Re polyester I saw a polyester dress in anthropologie a few weeks ago for £200.....
