Safeway Complaint - Safeway Scanner Overcharging
PORTLAND, OREGON -- I have learned to avoid Safeway as much as possible due to the frequent scanner errors. I shop all stores in my area, but never experience the number of scanner problems that I experience at Safeway. I believe that these are deliberate overcharges on sale items. Yesterday I was overcharged over $6. on a 2-for-1 ice cream sale for Dreyers (the scanner charged me about $13. for 2 packages when it should have been more like $6.49 for 2).
I believe that Safeway does this intentionally to get extra revenue (knowing full well that the small number of errors reported will still amount to a huge profit on these items). I have reported this problem to the State of Oregon, but the problem persists without a fine to Safeway.
