Is progressive pricing a key to turning over antiques inventory?

Local vintage shops and second-hand stores are
turning to progressive pricing to turn over some of their stale inventory (or to prevent inventory from becoming stale in the first place).

Progressive pricing offers steep discounts with each passing
week, in some cased with dates and corresponding prices printed right on the tags.

What do you
think about this idea to move shop inventory? We wonder, is it time to introduce this idea to an antiques shop environment or would it lessen the appeal of a precious object, leading to more pressure on dealers to “take one for the team?”
