We have unit prices at my store, but the only time I've had to deal with that is when people misread the banana signs and assume they're $.24/lb rather than $.24 each. When we opened our P-Fresh last year, a guest actually argued with our old CTL (who, conveniently enough, was covering GSTL's break) about it.That must do wonders for the "But the price said..." people
He means price stickers for regular prices. Some states require stores to put price tags on every item rather than just using shelf labels. In Super Refund states like NY and MI, stores are granted a waiver from item pricing as long as their scans are accurate. If a guest finds that an item scans for a higher price than what is shown on the shelf, they get a Super Refund. See the following threads:how do stores not put clearance tickets on items?
My state is the same way.I'm in one of those Unit Pricing states and we get what's referred to as Weights and Measures visits almost every month. The store gets fined if the Unit Price or what's called Unit of Measure (per each, pound, quart, etc) is incorrect, so every day when doing the label workload I have to make sure everything is right or else send a report up to MySupport so it can be corrected. Not a fun thing to do since I sometimes find 10 pages worth of errors on the labels.
You're right people don't because they aren't taught anything about it in school.I did my senior research project on unit prices on shelf labels. Had a whole gondola, bought different sizes of food, made different labels, etc. The finding of the study: Nobody cared about unit pricing.
