I do the same thing!!! It drives me nuts how many price errors they have.
It's a computer issue only because they haven't switched the pricing manually with a pricing gun. I worked at Target yrs ago and you have to scan
sale items or scan items that have price changes and put them in the computer system so they ring up properly. Wal Mart is LAZY!!! I remember when Wal
Mart wasn't like this but now it's ridiculous at the amount of pricing errors that occur.
I remember a while back the manager tried to argue with me over the price of a bottle of sun tan lotion! I checked the UPC and bar code, things i KNEW
how to do since i worked in various retail stores previously. She refused to go check and said it was a different size. I held up the line and went
and GOT the bar code and price tag that said the price. It was a $3 dollar difference! I was RIGHT and she didn't say anything just fixed it and
walked off. They changed the price tag but NEVER scanned the price into the system!
I don't care if people get mad at me in line. I will not pay more than what the tag says esp when it's THEIR fault it's coming up wrong. When I
worked at Target their policy was if it was within a $5 difference you gave it to the customer for the price they say without a price check. Anything
over $5 required a price check. I don't know if it is still like that but i wouldn't be surprised if it is still like that. Target has always been
better at customer service and still is!
This doesn't surprise me with Wal Mart in the LEAST bit! I refuse to shop there. I use to love Wal Mart but it has just changed so much that i don't
want to give them my business. The employees (where I live) are rude and lazy. The store is disgusting and they never stock their shelves. Heaven for
bid you ask them any question, you get ignored and told "Oh that isn't my dept." When I worked at Target it didn't matter whose dept it was you
TOOK the guest TO that area and got someone to help them! Wal Mart should take a few lessons from Target!
I had to go into Wal Mart last week since they are now our friggin Ticketmaster. The guy at the electronics dept said he had no idea that there was
Ticketmaster there nor how to get the tickets to print, yet there was a FRIGGIN touch pad device FOR Ticketmaster WITH a sign!!! They didn't know how
to get my ticket so I left. I was too pissed off after waiting 20mins for someone to even acknowledge we were there. They had better not even mess
around with my Matchbox Twenty ticket, they will see one hormonal pregnant woman.
I will have to go there next week and try again. I will get
management involved this time. I mean it's THEIR dept and they don't even know how to use the Ticketmaster part! AHHHHH!
