this was my first thought when courses started shutting down, but oddly I briefly saw what seemed like the opposite lol. it would be hard to justify raising the price if the whole covid thing settled down after lowering them, so i figure stores will just keep them the same
I figure you will get better deals from shops that might go bankrupt if the virus forces a long enough quarantine. Any business that survives the quarantine will see business pick up and won't be tempted to clear stock unless new stock comes in. That also looks to be delayed with companies shuttering for a while and potential travel restrictions.
