I was in the Target store in Middletown, New York. I noticed a clearance sign up in an aisle where there were pocketbooks.
I looked on the other side of the sign and there was no clearance sign for the merchandise on the other side. I went to the front of the store and asked for assistance at the area of the pocketbooks where the clearance sign was. I was told by one employee that it was for the merchandise on the other side of the sign. I told her that it wasn't.
She looked at the back of the clearance sign and there was not a sign for clearance nor was there any clearance merchandise on that side. She then stated that the sign was just there. Then she walked away. A store manager then came over and I showed him the sign.
He stated that the sign was for the merchandise on the other side of the sign. I told him it was not for the merchandise on the other side because those items were not on clearance. They were umbrellas. He then told me that the pocketbook that I wanted was $44.95.
I told him that I was aware of the original price but there was a clearance sign here. He told me that the best he could do was take 10 percent off. He then told the cashier to take 10 percent off the price.
He did not remove this clearance sign nor did he ask any of the employees who were present to take this sign down. He could have taken 20 percent off, apologized for the error and then have an employee take down the sign.
Reason of review: Pricing issue.
