Another gem from my store's FB page. A customer posted, complaining that rather than being marked down, an item she bought was "marked up" And posted a pic of the tag. org. price was 39.50, marked "up" to 39.99. Implying she had actually paid more for it than the original price. Someone else commented, what a scam, and another person replied saying no, simple human error. Which is the most likely scenario, since we do markdowns by hand. And yes, we have to do them quickly, and sometimes errors are made.
however, no matter what's on the ticket, the prices are in the system, so when you ring them up, they ring up at the correct price. so let's say this was supposed to be 29.99, minus the additional % off clearance. She didn't pay the higher price, and a quick look at her receipt would show what she actually DID pay. She's whining and assuming she paid more, when I can say with certainty, she did not.
She then responded to the person who said it was a simply error, no, it wsa greed, and saying as they were a former employee, of course they'd take the store's side, and how sad it was the store felt the need to scam its customers.
