The difference is dramatic, and it’s clear which price is, as it were, objectively correct. Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters has its US price on the jacket: 12.99 US, which converts to 17.50 NZ.
Although I haven’t systematically checked other titles, my sense is that many items that are ~$20 on the web-site are ~$30-35 store retail. The practical conclusion is obvious – no convenience (let alone the endlessly degraded, low stock, Whitcoulls simulacrum of convenience) is worth a 57% mark-up.
