Kohls - Deceptive Pricing Methods
All Store Depts
KELLER, TEXAS -- As a former long time Kohls employee I'd like to make you aware of the fact that Kohls has an ongoing program of increasing the base price of its merchandise in order to compensate for the so called "discount off" deals they regularly conduct. An informed shopper, who has shopped other stores for a like item, will see that the final price you pay at Kohls will be the same or higher than most other retailers in the area. Check out some of the base prices at Kohls. You will see what I mean. Also look out for a new white ticket covering the old price ticket. This is called "price changes" and is a regular activity employees are instructed to conduct with lists of price increases provided by management.
When employees ask how Kohls can provide so many discounts they are routinely told that it's all " built into the pricing".
