Shopko Rip-off Absolutely, positively, not right as a law evil dirt bags Neenah Wisconsin
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: Not completely true
*Consumer Comment: Let me get this straight.....
Then yesterday she got a letter in the mail that states that Shopko is suing her to the tune off 455.00! I was like huh? How can they do that? I have never heard of that, but because of a wisconsin law that says a business can sue no more than twice the amount of the items stolen IF the items cannot be resold, it is something they can do.
I am shocked as to why Shopko feels that these items can not be resold and why the feel it is purposful to sue a 17 year old who had a clean record before this. Besides the crap law that Wisconsin has, which I am sure does justice for some businesses and I understand the purpose of having the law, but I honestly think that is ridiculous.
They won't even provide information about why they felt these items could not be resold, they also only give you 21 days to pay the 455.00, there is no way a student who only works part time can pay that in 21 days! So it's on the parent, this is crap and I will no longer give my business to them, ever. I understand people who steal are doing something wrong and it hurts companies revenue and they have to drive up prices for consumers because of stuff like this, but I feel that this is ridiculous and I personally will have nothing to do with them.
