Walmart - Wal-Mart's NOT a Good Place to Spend Your Money Part 2
Admittedly, I am not a walmart fan.I rarely shop there because I do not condone their overall treatment of employees or consumers (basically, I feel that they don't give a care about either!) However, I did shop there twice in the last couple of months and I had problems both times.
The 2nd time I thought I'd check out their Christmas clearance items. Even tho it was more than 2 weeks after Xmas, there were lots of things (mostly broken, opened, picked over) still available. Signs advertised "All Christmas 50% off" & additional signs listed exclusions (holiday storage items.) But, I found a couple of pkgs of Gingerbread men cookies, a porcelain Santa, & some ribbon. Check out lines were long but, since I had few items, I got in the "quick" (overstatement!) checkout line.
Cashier rings up the cookies at full price; I pointed out that they should be 50% off. He called a supervisor. She told me that the cookies were not 50% off because they could still sell them at the regular price past the holidays. I mentioned that the signs advertised them at 50% off.
She responded that the signs were only for Xmas items. I told her that the cookies were Xmas items since decorated Xmas trees were on the packaging. She refused to honor it. By the way, the expiration date on the cookies was less than a month later.
I chose not to buy them. She left. Cashier rings up the Santa figure again at full price. It was originally $10; there was another price sticker on it that was $5.00.
Supervisor is called again. She notes that it is ringing up at $10 & begrudgingly tells cashier to ring it in at $5. I said 50% off the marked price is $2.50; she refused to sell it at that price. I didn't bother buying that either.
In the end, I wasted almost an hour browsing & trying to purchase some items; I ended up with some ribbon .
