    B&M chain opticals, and some independents, regularly have sales that offer 50% second pair of glasses. Has nothing to do with online retailers.

    I think that is a mistake. Just tell them you will need to charge them more than the online price (for reasons you should be able to explain), but give them some discount from list price (maybe split...
