My mind boggles

Why is there such a massive discrepancy between online prices and high street prices for some items?

I wanted a 16GB USB flash drive.  As we wandered through Glasgow yesterday I popped into several places looking for one, and couldn't get one beneath £30 - and prices went up to £45.

Pop on to Amazon and I have a selection of possibilities from £17.

I could understand a premium of £5 for shopping in the high street.  But double the cost?  WTF?
