False Advertising on Both Home Depot Shelf Tag and Website
"Safer Klean Strip Paint Thinner" Will Strip Your Wallet - 120oz and 30oz Sizes - Complaint
I was shopping for paint thinner today and stopped at Home Depot. I had the usual metal gallon can in my hand from the lower shelf, and noticed the plastic containers at eye level said "Safer" on them.
I'm not green and I don't care about safe, but I care about price. I noticed the shelf tag said "Safer Klean Strip Thinner GAL $9.47". Then I saw the shelf tag for the can in my hand, and it said "Klean Strip Thinner GAL $9.97".
I was seriously considering the Safer product, until I noticed "120oz" on the label. I looked at the can in my hand, and sure enough it said "128oz".
Then I looked at "quarts" of the Safer variety, and sure enough they said "30oz." The shelf tag said "QT".
So, I arrived home and visited the HD website. The Safer item is advertised in large bold letters as "1-Gal", and down in the "specifications" area it says "128 oz". But looking at the picture in the listing, well, you can look for yourself - 120 oz! Maybe Klean Strip bamboozled HD, but HD needs to get their advertising fixed. I was also in Lowes today and noticed their tags are *correct*.
Advertised as a gallon but was 8 oz short!
