Staples Complaint - False advertising - Advertised specials not available because the store only received 3 of the items
MONUMENT, COLORADO -- The August 9, 2009 advertisement showed label makers, pencil sharpeners, copy paper and thumbdrives all for very good prices.
The Monument, CO store received at total of 3 pencil sharpeners, which were sold out in the first 30 minutes. There were no label makers left, the copy paper was a $1.00/ream with the not in-store rebate, but "easy" rebate, which was exactly the same hassle as any other rebate, and no one knew anything about the advertised thumbdrives.
So I just followed up on the pencil sharpeners, since they had information on that. THEIR suppliers didn't have any.
Then the store clerk asked me if I wanted to be part of their rewards program. Seriously!?!
