i went into target today (2-20-12) in blue ash, ohio to get something to eat at the pizza hut express. After I ordered, the price that was posted was not the price that i was charged.
When I asked about it, I was told that the price was changed. I asked why it still said one price and I was to pay more, she said that's what the register says. I then asked to speak to a supervisor and an off duty employee walked up and told her to give me the lower price, which was good until I asked what they were going to do for the future customers. The off duty employee said "if they don't complain.
Nothing" I found this very offensive. I work hard for my money as many of us do. So, when she said that I got very upset, asked again to speak to a manager. A manager finally showed up after I raised my voice.
He said that they were not allowed to take down the old sign. I suggested that they just change the price on the poster since, in the words of his employee, if the next person doesn't notice then they won't change the price. When I said that, the off duty employee started yelling at me. I suggested to her to leave since she wasn't on the clock.
She then told me that I couldn't tell her what to do and she was going to call the police on me. Now, I don't know, but theft is theft. Target was charging more than posted to who knows how many people.
Add up fifty cents per transaction and you get grand theft.
