Things Argentina hasn't figured out

So, Americans are used to buying things in bulk for a discount. It makes sense, of course. Retailers want to incentivize you to buy more, so they offer a slight discount.

In Argentina, a discount is very very rare. In fact, in some cases, they will even charge you more to buy in bulk. It has taken some getting used to. I think there are some cultural reasons why this hasn't taken hold, but it still baffles me everytime.
