Coles Supermarkets / pricing specials

1 WoolstoresFremantle, Western Australia, Australia Review updated:

Ref: CS Fremantle 12/1/2019 'Elizabeth' and 'Tara' - products Beetroot slaw and Coleslaw 200gms advertised as any two for $3.50. Charged at the till as $2 each - total of $4 for two.

Regular shopper.

Firstly excellent young person on till - 'Elizabeth' tried to get some assistance by telephone in dealing with my concern and with a growing line of people by herself - why aren't the self service aisles open from 8am on Saturday mornings? - with delay and inconvenience to other patrons (line was nine in number with two more waiting at the service desk - one till open only in the entire store at about 8.40am) when she was unable to simply provide a $0.50 refund in cash etc.

'Tara' who appeared to be a senior/manager then appeared was asked to ensure that the correct pricing for buying two items for $3.50 was unable to do so to [prevent further 'gouging' in relation to others purchasing either before my discovery or after - that day or beyond - services and self-service tills and all Coles stores ...? Tara organised a free Beetroot Slaw and charged the Coleslaw at $1.75 for a nett refund of $2.25 - appreciated but didn't solve the problem for others less alert.

An publishable explanation in writing please before close of business in WA today 14 January 2019

    Under the Consumer Code of Conduct, that Coles is a party to, You should have been given both items for free. Coles ripped you off!
