    It's probably MSRP...that's always inflated by about 75%. :-)

    He can get a whopping $5 for all 70 rings if he sends them to Cash-for-Gold!

    if one subtracts electronics, the combined value of remaining mdse. is roughly about 20k. this seems to be completely blown out of proportion

    K-mart robbed the stockholders several years ago, I hope he gets away with it like they did

    K-mart sells jewelry worth an average $285 per ring? That $20,000 doesn't sound right at all.
