WALMART Complaint Wood Village Walmart, Wood Village, OR
@ 5am we stood in line for the ADVERTIZED Saturday ONLY SALE Starting locally 6am. 11/27/2010
'We wanted 37 inch vizio LCD HDTV. After an hour and only when I tracked someone down to ask why only 11 items were on the floor. And if they had more in the back to bring out.
I found out that they had, had 100 units and had been selling the items prior to the sale date for full price. So there were only 18 left @ the time of the sale. It had been advertised all over TV as a Saturday ONLY SALE!!
So this is what I figure will happen. The consumers will take their receipts back in within 30 days and ask for the sale price discount + the $40 gift card that went with it. Because most stores will say that if you buy and the item goes on sale within 30 day’s we’ll give you the price difference. So they got the TV they wanted and didn’t have to get up and stand in line to do it @ the crack of dawn.
This was the old BAIT AND SWITCH. Get you into the store and then run out and you'll buy a more expensive item which what we ended up doing. This is the 1st sale like this I've ever done anywhere. And it will be THE LAST. Walmart this polices of yours SUCKS.
