Shopping and Prices marked on shelves...

Regardless, prices on shelves for items, must be honored at the check out line, if store raised any prices and forgot to change tags on shelves, then said store must sell at the advertised prices, just a reminder that the Atty. General's office in all states handles complaints from customers and does look into the matter.

And when calling about a price in question, you might mention, that local news at tv and newspapers might be interested in a new story for folks, that will definitely get store magr's attention quickly. Don't let the stores do this to you!

yup. Long as it's the store's doing, the lowest visible price prevails. Years ago we had a family gathering and one fella noticed a goofup in a sears ad - they had advertized 2 toolboxes and the smaller one had the higher price. So we took the ad in and even agreed with the manager that it was probably a mixup. The big rollaway would be a real bargain at $5! But that's what the ad said.
So he finally said he could sell us 1 for that price. Whoop whoop, wait a sec - where does the ad say that? Whattaya makin up rules? It was our opinion that he could sell us all we wanted for $5! So we each got one & had to get Otto's pickup to carry them home. Boy they scrambled to roll the rest back in the warehouse! :)

When they are checking you through the line...Make sure 'scanned' price is the same as the 'marked' price or the one on the shelf...

Notoriously bad at changeing their computers to reflect the new price...Software is supposed to do it for them, but computers are only as good as the people using them...
