Kmart Complaint - False advertising about Martha Stewart Christmas tree
For a couple of weeks I have seen a Kmart commercial about a Christmas tree. I need a new tree this year so I have made it a point in the past few days to really watch the commercial to see if it was what I wanted. I want a prelit, rotating tree. The kmart commercial I am talking about is where the neighbors come to the door wanting this husband and wife to gor Christmas caroling. He tries to get out of going by stating that putting the lights on the Christmas tree will take a long time. Meanwhile, his wife is in the background, plug the tree in, and everything is done in about 3 seconds. Immediately after that, the commercial shows a tree rotating with lights and the information Martha Stewart treem at Kmart for $79.99 Well when I made a special trip with my 2 young kids in tow to the local Kmart in Maryville, TN, do you think I actually could buy what was advertised? Of course not. The prelit, rotating tree was $179.99 No one in the store could help me, of course they hadn't seen the commercial and weren't willing to try to help me. Therefor I called Kmart corporate while standing in the store. The man on the phone seemed to know what I was talking about right away (which makes me think I wasn't the first to call). He said it didn't rotate in the commercial when she plugged it in, which I agreed with and he told me that at the end of the commercial when it was showing it rotating, well that was for "special effect". I told him that was "false advertising" and that part of the commercial should be pulled. That was my last trip to Kmart. Walmart and Target, here I come!!!!!
