My local Walmart, via the corporate website and selecting the local store, advertised that on Black Friday, starting at 5AM they would have an item available for sale. I was there at 5AM and there were no items. The consumer complaint process at Walmart via the website is a farce.
Based on reading other posts at pissedconsumer.com it appears to have been more widespread than my local Walmart.
I am urging anyone else who took the time to visit Walmart based on their advertising, and found no items available, to file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission. Please do so only if you were at the store before or on-time for when the item was to be available (of course).
I am hopeful the FTC will take action against Walmart for False Advertising and the agency/courts will levy a very hefty fine on Walmart. This can only occur if enough of us file complaints against Walmart.
I will be passing this word on the several more websites. Please join me in this effort. Even if you wee not a victim personally, please feel free to spread the word so those that were decieved can file complaints.
The FTC complaint form can be accessed at:
Happy Holidays everyone.
