Beware of the unit-price labelling at TARGET stores. I just found at least one unit-price sticker that was very badly incorrect, and if there's one, there might well be others.

I was looking at acetominophen. I found a set of 2 bottles, packaged together, each containing 250 tablets. The price (in Massachusetts) for the set of 2 was $13.99. The unit-price sticker on the shelf showed the "price per 100" as $5.60--which is exactly double what it really is. ($13.99 X 2 = $28 (rounding up) per 1,000 tablets - $2.80/100.

The price sticker on the shelf looked like it must have come from corporate. I didn't have time to check any other prices, but no one ever accused any retailer of employing rocket scientists--even if, presumably, they're using calculators or computers to generate these things!!!!!

Product or Service Mentioned: Pills.

Reason of review: unit price labelling.

Preferred solution: Let the company propose a solution.

I don't see what the issue is, if it was priced as you say you are paying less than $5.60, not more.
