Oh gosh... if they start this practice here, there goes my clothing budget!

Australian retailers are beginning to charge a "try-on" fee that is refunded to the customer upon purchase, reports the Sydney Morning Herald. The merchants charging the try-on fees hope to put an end to customers checking out the goods in person, only to shop online for the best price.

How do you think that would go over here in the US? Would you pay a "try on" fee?

Heck no. I dont buy cloths much and when I do I want to try them on. I would leave a store if they tried that.

I agree wtih the other lady, I think expecting people to pay to try on clothes is a bit ridiculous.
