I went to Walmart's Black Friday event today and purchased a 50inch Emerson TV for $298. The cashier assured me that the TV was available (I was at the end of the line).
After I paid for the TV I continued to shop. When I arrived to the back of the store to pick up my TV I was informed that the TV was no longer available. The assist mgr tried to down play the situation. I saw the gentleman that was in line ahead of me had a TV.
I asked the assist mgr if he could order me another TV or upgrade the TV for the same price as this was their error.
He told me he couldn't. I contacted Walmart's corporate office and I am awaiting a response.
Monetary Loss: $298.
