I've recieved fliers in the mail from OFFICE DEPOT informing me of a 3 day sale. I went to the store to purchase certain items at sale price. I was interested in a cordless phone from UNIDEN. Regular price, $25.00. On sale for $14.95. I was informed that all the employees now work for a "LIQUIDATOR" & that the LIQUIDATOR will not honor the sale prices in the circular. If I wanted to puchase an item advertised "on sale", I would have to pay full price.

If I wanted the sale price, I would have to drive over 20 miles away to another store that was not involved in this liquidation. I see this as false advertisment. I purchesed the phone at full price anyway, & was told "all sales were final". I'm hoping it works ok, because if it doesn't, I don't know if I have any recourse. My reciept is stamped with this information & the sales clerk crossed out my bar code on my reciept. I would love to nail this company to the wall.

Was that store going out of business?

AUTHOR: Edgeman - (U.S.A.)

Generally speaking, a liquidator does exactly what the name suggests. They take over a store and its inventory and sells everything off.

If that store was indeed closing, then it is the liquidator running things and they may or may not choose to honor a sale price. It's not false advertisement, Office Depot was not calling the shots at that store.

You should still have manufacturer warranty coverage on your phone.

Ummm...

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

This is not False Advertisement. The Office Depot's that are closing are not run by Office Depot anymore. You could have gone to the store that wasn't closing to get the sale price.

The reason that store is with a liquidator is because Office Depot is having trouble and closing several stores. So nailing them to the wall isn't really needed, they seemed to do a good enough job of that themselves.
