Fred Meyer Complaint - False Advertising - Water Shoes
PORTLAND, OREGON -- I have only shopped in Fred Myers once or twice before because I live so far away from one, but I really liked the selection, so when I was looking for a particular item (water shoes) and I was in the area, I stopped in.
Imagine my surprise when I see that they have only one pair left... in my size... and it was marked 60% off lowest discounted price. More surprise when I saw that these shoes were marked both on the box and a tag stapled the the sole of the shoe at $35... so 60% off of $35 is $14... I HAD to get this deal!
So I grabbed a few other things I needed and headed to check out... Well when the cashier scanned the box, it came up the $54 original price... I explained that it says $35 on the box and there is a tag on the sole of the shoe at $35, and it was marked as 60% off. So he had his manager run back there and verify.
She seemed upset to be bothered, came right back said she couldn't find anymore, just discount the $54. So I took my items to the customer service counter and after waiting in a line for 30 minutes asked them to ring it up the way they have it advertised. She said that her manager said they couldn't do it, so I left all my items and went to Big 5.
