March 4, 2011 I had stopped at Stater Bros. Market for a few items of food.
While shopping I noticed Bar S Hot Dogs with a price tag of $0.75 cents for Meat Bar S Hot Dogs directly in front of the Hot Dogs.
The tag simply said meat Hot Dogs. When checking out the cashier rang up over $2.00 for each package.
I mentioned that the price tag has a price of $0.75. The cashier said that is for meat franks and I said those are meat franks. The cashier said no! everyone knows that meat franks means chicken and pork! I simply relied that I did not know that, meat to me means beef. Beef is meat and she said no it is not. I said that the price tag did not specify (Chicken & Pork). She was very upset, than she pointed to the ad on the large window. I asked the people behind me to please excuse me for holding them up and one man said he understood and mentioned that meat to him meant beef also. Than I asked the cashier to please check the tag. Than she and the box girl went to get the tag. Upon returning the cashier very rudely stuck the price tag in my face and said see it says meat! . I said yes but it does not say Chicken & Pork only. Than she handed the tag to the box girl and she began to right down Chicken & Pork under the meat. Than she told the box girl no we cannot use that tag. She refused to sell me the Hot dogs for the advertised price located at the front of the product. At this time I told her that I did not want the Hot Dogs. Again she mentioned very loudly, that everyone knows Meat mean Chicken & Pork!. I replied I would remember this in the future. I felt insulted an I had been treated as though I were stupid. I have shopped at Stater Bros. for years and never have I been treated like this. I will make it a point not to shop there again.
