I don’t like Bunnings. Monopolistic, domineering, predatory, bad service, all the usual stuff.
Today I may have had a win. I bought a new reticulation controller. The shelf price was $49.99.
I also bought some bookcase and wardrobe shelf supports, those little plastic or brass things that fit in the holes in the sides.
When I came to check out, there were only two checkouts operating with about 5 people queued at each one. I was stewing.
When my retic controller was scanned, it wouldn’t register. OK, the guy peeled off the top bar code to reveal another one underneath. This time, it scanned OK, at $23.89!
So how come it was shelf priced at $49.99? Rip off.
At Coles at Innaloo yesterday, I had the opposite experience. I saw Bird’s Eye Wok Meals on special at $4.99, so I grabbed two packets.
Only when I got home did I realise I’ve been charged $9.99 each packet!! That’s the full price, I assume.
I am angry. This is deception. I should take them back, but why the hell should I have to? I can’t face the trek back. I’m going to make a huge fuss on their complaints web page. I’m sick of this constant attempt to trick the customer.
