Walmart - Wal-Mart doesn't honor signed prices!
Wal-Mart doesn't honor their signed prices! When shopping with my sister, we were in the garden center when my sister said "I need a new gas grill". I looked over at the grills and there was a sign that said "$15" at the top of the rack. So we asked the clerk if we could get one. She said that price was for just the top shelf (which was empty). I told her that the sign says $15 and I wanted the grill for the signed price. She went and got her department manager. There was three different areas on this shelving unit. The signs said "$15, $29, and $39. The prices of the gas grills under the signs were in the first one ranged from $99 to $139, second $159 to $199, and the third one was $200 and up.
The manager said that those signs were for merchandise that had been moved the day before to the other side of the room. Again I said that I wanted the gas grill for the signed price. She said "No". I told her to please get the store manager in charge.
The store manager came out and I told her that I wanted the gas grill for the signed price. She said "No, they have signed that way for 3 years and they have never had that problem." She argued with me for over five minutes that there was no way she would sell me the grill ($99) for the signed price of $15.
The next day we were at another Wal-Mart and I happened to see the store manager. I asked him "What would you do if this had been his store?" He said "First I would have apologized for the mistake, then offered to sell you the grill for a discounted price. But, in the end if I would have been adamant about the price, he would have had to sell it to me for the signed price."
We shop at Wal-Mart all the time and this is the first time I have ever had this problem. Watch out at the register that what you thought was the price of an item, is what it really rings up for.
