This drives me mad it must happento other people (shopping rant)

Post  TP on Mon Nov 07, 2011 10:51 pm

Went shopping yesterday, the shelf talker says one price normally an offer but it hasnt been changed on the till so when it goes through it goes through at the full price? Got this sorted out after hanging around while the till person finds someone to go and check it and then has to alter the till grrrrr.

In the afternoon in Wilkinsons I bought some fairy which is a premium one limited edition and am sure its 99p. When i check the receipt later on at home its gone through at £1.69. I just feel i have to check everything and if i dont there is a problem? I wouldnt have bought this fairy at £1.69. I am sure its against the law to put things through at a different price. I dont have one local to me to take it back so looks like im stuck with it but feel abit conned. It defeats the object of buying something on offer.

Does anyone else get this and do you feel the responsibility is on you to check. Shops get your act together and make sure the prices match on the shelf and the till. It wastes so much time and its not the till persons fault either. They get fed up too. Mad Mad

I agree think of all the money they make if they charge full price too. Its wrong. Its not up to the customer to check everything.

He puts all the special offer or reduced stuff at the back so he knows to watch for all the minus amounts showing up on the scanner, if he's not sure he just asks them to check (he adds up as we go along so knows how much we should be paying - what can I say he's a statistics guy!). We did it once with some Kettle Chips and apologised for messing about and the cashier was all "no, you do right, I wouldn't pay full price for these, don't waste your money spending when you don't have to" Laughing Our supermarket is really good tbh and if we have had an issue they've been great, it's only a small chain so you're treated like a real person which I like.
