Hairbrush — FAiled to Honor Ticketed Price
I stopped at Marshall to buy a hairbrush and was happy to find one with a ticket price for $1.99. However, when I got to the cashier to pay for the hairbrush I was told that the ticket price was incorrect and the correct price was $20.00. I insisted that I should pay the lowest ticketed price because it was the store’s error, not mine. I also explained to the cashier that changing the ticketing price to make me pay a higher price is false advertising, a violation of New Jersey laws. She called the manager, I.See the Top 10 Worst Complaints in Watchung, NJV, for advised on the issue. Ms. I.V. stated that the price of the hairbrush is $20.00 and the markdown ticket on it for $ 1.99 was an error. She continued to tell me that I could leave the hairbrush if I did not want to pay the full price. I informed I.V. that I would consider filing a complaint against Marshal’s illegal practice of deception with appropriate New Jersey authority.
I am surprised that a store manager acted in such illegal manner. Was she properly trained and learned about the basis of New Jersey laws on deceptive advertising?
