Fresh Market Complaint - Exorbitant Pricing
We are regular shoppers at The Fresh Market in Southern Pines, NC. I am a diabetic. We purchased a sugar free apple pie on 31 August 2009. The price for a regular pie was $7.99, we were shocked when we got home and looked at the sales receipt. They had priced the sugar free pie at $9.99. I went back to the store and asked a clerk in the bakery department about the pricing. Her reply was that corporate set the prices. We have the extra $2.00 for the pie. The irony is that the store has plastered all over the window and other places in the store asking for donations to the Kid, s Diabetic fund. I sense a certain inconsistency in their motives. Why should a diabetic have to pay more? Certainly the sweetener they use in one pie does not cost $2.00. Many items in this store are not priced. The service is sloppy and they have a very cavalier attitude regarding their customers.
