Absolutely... though I would say that it is up to the customer to buy wherever he (or she) wants to, rather than simply where they get the best deal.
In my original comment, I was merely pointing out that rather than being mercenary in the extreme by buying in at the post price drop level and selling out at the pre price drop level, the vendor in question may have made a conscious decision to protect his margin on previously purchased stock by keeping his selling price at the pre-drop level, and have chosen to be satisfied with slower sales to those customers who have not done research.
