Have you seen “Misleading sales”

Squeakaholic July 17, 2009 0

I was watching Today Tonight the other day and I was quite surprised at the different techniques large retail stores were using to mislead their customers to thinking they are having a sale or were getting a bargain for items on sale. As an example, one grocery retail chain actually marked up their prices and had a “special tag” with a higher price than the normal tag. Yes, some shopper may not have noticed the difference but how untrustworthy is the retailer!

Our advice: The next time you go shopping and you see a “special tag”, just have a quick peek to make sure the “special” price is actually cheaper than the normal priced tag.
