Kmart - Not Worth the Trouble
Cut-Price items - Complaint
GRAND FORKS, NORTH DAKOTA -- A number of times I have had the annoying misfortune of bringing items found in Cut-Price Discount bins/display cases, shelves, to the cash register only to be told that the items had not belonged in those bins/display case/shelf. If I want the item I would have to pay the normal price it is sold at. This is so, even if the item is ticketed with the discounted price!
As I am a sucker for a good bargain, this has happened a number of times at the same Kmart. (Sometimes I "luck out", and actually get a good bargain, LOL.) Whenever I speak to a manager about this vexation, the reason given for this is that the sales-clerks in the department in which I find the items do not always check out merchandise to see if it is in the right shelf, bin, display case, etc., or, if the items are priced appropriately. I can't think of anything more basic than these tasks for a sales-clerk to be doing.
