Supermarket Ripoff

Posted By on Thu, Jan 22, 2009 at 9:32 PM

To customers of a large national supermarket chain that does not have its head office in Nova Scotia: be very aware of price ripoffs when you order from their deli counter. They seem to have a strategy that involves posting one price on the product in the case, but having another higher price loaded into their electronic scales. Several times now I have ordered something and noticed when I got home that the $1.99/100g price posted on the card came out of the scale as $2.39. I have also caught it several times at the point of ordering and their staff are always totally clueless as to how to rectify it. Beware.
