[h2s_box]I thought it might be interesting to you and your readers that the Attorney General in MO is suing Walgreens due to deceptive pricing tactics. I know I frequently have trouble with items ringing up incorrectly there, and it’s another reminder that we all should check our receipts wherever we’re shopping! Anyway, thought you might want to Google it and/or pass on the info.
I just saw your post about your mishap at the Dollar Store and the gum. Tricksters! 🙁 It made me think of this article I read about Walgreens that was in our local newspaper just the other day and how you post a lot of Walgreens deals. It accuses Walgreens of overcharging customers and using deceptive display advertising and pricing schemes. Bottom line, always check your receipts after shopping!! Here is the link. It explains how they even hired private investigators to secret shop them and proves their theory.
For information about this lawsuit, check out this article published in the Huffington Post.
So what are your thoughts about this lawsuit?! Have you personally had issues with pricing errors? What steps do you take to ensure that you catch errors before you leave the store?
