Take care when you shop at the store ‘where everything is better’

with 5 comments


We have had the experience of several times noticing that the price listed on the shelves of Pomegranate is not what the computer shows.

Not that we are singling out this store, other stores are guilty of this as well. Sometimes its an accident, and we aren’t saying they do it on purpose but really people EVERYONE NEEDS TO CHECK THE RECEIPT AFTER THEY GET IT AND MAKE SURE THE PRICES MATCH THE PRICE ON THE ITEM OR THE SHELF. That way you can save your pennies and the store can make sure they don’t accidentally steal from you.

  1. The owner just pledged 1,000,000 dollars to Bonei Olam at the Dinner so at least your extra pennies are going to Tzadaka 🙂

  2. I suggest you always shop with a list – and write the prices of everything you take off the shelf onto your list. I do this to help speed the process of updating my grocery prices spreadsheet (since some of those computer abbreviations on receipts are incomprehensible), but it’s also useful for calling the cashier on it when they ring up a price that is different from the one posted on the shelf. In most states, they are required by law to give you the price posted on the shelf if it differs from the price in the computer. A smiling reminder of this will usually solve the problem and get the price corrected.

  3. Why is it that the checkout price is always higher than the shelf price? If it were an accident then 50% of the time it would be higher and 50% of the time would be lower.

  4. If you don’t mind paying Pomegranates’ listed prices, I don’t think you’d mind paying for errors.

    I went there Friday because it’s the only place that sells Wissotzky Rosehip and Hibiscus tea and that’s one of the very few things I’d buy there. Even the sales items can be gotten for less 5 minutes away.
