|Woolies attempted deception 14 August 2012
Not to be outdone, Woolies got me again today.
In the photo above, notice the WOW SALAD BOCONCCINI (sic) TOMATO & BASIL 300G? It scanned at $6.98, even though it’s clearly marked down to $5.58.
(Also note that they can’t even spell their own product name properly. Look at the tub label, bocconcini, which is correct.)
I am tired of this. To get it fixed, I have to go back to Karrinyup and stand at the counter. I don’t want to do this! I have no reason to go back for a week or more.
I cannot go through a scanning checkout these days without catching at least one of these attempted scams, be it Woolies, Coles or IGA. I think it’s time to go to the ACCC and demand that scanning “errors” be stopped.
Additionally, it used to be that if you found a scanning error, you got the item free. Not any more! They stopped that years ago. Too many payouts I reckon — too many errors.
I was pleased to hear about the Facebook rant today about Target children’s clothing. A woman posted her anger at Target making “trashy” clothing for 7-14 year olds.
I don’t care about that, but I do care about K-Mart’s DRAB clothing. In men’s clothing, you can have any shade of drab you like, as long as it’s black, purple, green, turquoise, military camouflage or grey.
But the overwhelming impression in K-Mart men’s is DRAB. It looks awful! Cheap, but rubbish.
Bali, by contrast has magnificent men’s clothing. I can’t find anything I like here, but up there I am in clothing heaven. The only problem is, 4XL is not a common size in Bali!
I think it’s time I started telling these local waster shops that they can take their drab and stuff it. No wonder retail business in Australia is bad. These guys can’t sell to save their lives.
