The company has all there registers set to ring up the product at a slightly higher price than the listed one they have been informed about it numerous times over the past two years since they opened. They have done nothing to fix the problem, it cost me more in gas to go back and correct the situation and most people's time even mine is more valuable to me then to have to stand in line at the customer service desk for hours to get 15 cents back over time they make a fortune ripping people off like this.  Someone should take legal action against them in the name of all the consumers they rip off daily with the pricing scam I guess this is how they pay for their low prices by stealing from the consumers knowing most people won't waste the time to correct it since their time is worth more than 15 cents and hour.

I am sure they most likely do this on other products as well, but the two major flaws I noticed were the "simply orange" (brand) orange juice priced at "$2.85"  ringing up at all registers in the stores for at least the last year possibly longer at an even $3. informed store manager of this a long time ago and had them correct it more than a few times out of the principle of it just not being right even though my time was not worth the amount I got back they should have to pay for gas and my 2 hour wait to resolve this matter.

Also the first time they corrected the issue I got stuck with a rip off on top of a rip off two orange juices rung up wrong and I calculated it to be 30 cents I was owed and I even mentioned than it was incorrect and was told it was just the tax making it different and I didn't feel like fighting the issue anymore that day after already waiting in line to resolve it. There should be no tax ever on a food stamp purchase. she rang them both up as lemonade same branand they for some unknown reason ring up as taxable items even though there is nothing to justify that and when I buy them on my food stamps I never have to pay the tax yet if I buy them with cash the way she rang them up they are taxed why are you ripping of the middle class with tax on these? Shouldn't this be illegal as well. how can they justify tax on this brands lemonade it's all natural ingredients no sugar added or anything to make it taxable. It's water and juice nothing else.

I don't think you understand the way it works.

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

First thing you should do if in fact the register is ringing up the price incorrectly is to tell the cashier at the register that the price at the cooler says $2.85. Make someone go check it. Then they will correct the price of the item. I am a military wife and believe it or not, our Commissary has this happen all the time. Why? Because the price has to be manually changed in a computer by a real person from one week to the next reflecting the sale price of every item in their store which is on sale or on clearance. Even at McDonald's they have to change the prices in the cash register for Wednesdays and Sundays so that people can pay 49 cents for their hamburgers and 69 cents for their cheeseburgers.

In regards to the sales tax statement, some states charge sales tax on any food item that you can take off the shelf and eat or drink it the way it comes packaged, regardless if you pay of it with food stamps or not.
