Lowe's Breaks Laws!
Sunday. 12.27.09 6:59 pm
I went to Lowe's today, and bought some stuff.
I was watching the signature pad for prices, since there was no extra-window thing to see the prices, and I figured they would show up on the sign-y pad.

Nope.

I mentioned it to the clerk, she says you find out how much stuff costs when you print out the receipt.

I thought that was illegal, but I wasn't sure if it was some other state or locality.

However, Good ol' Virginny has it spelled out.

§ 3.2-5627. Pricing of retail merchandise.

A. In a point-of-sale system the selling price of a consumer item displayed or offered for sale at retail shall be clearly and conspicuously indicated in Arabic numerals, so as to be readable and understandable by visual inspection, and shall be stamped upon or affixed to the consumer item or posted at or adjacent to the display.

The provisions of this section shall not apply to: (i) greeting cards sold individually that have a code price, readable and understandable by visual inspection, on the back of the card; or (ii) merchandise ordered as a gift by a consumer that is sent by mail or other delivery service to a person other than the consumer by the retailer at the request of the consumer.

So I guess I will leave feedback on their website, and call the store and let them know about it tomorrow.

I LOVE LOWE'S
So Lowe's is probably my favorite store in the universe. I was thinking that maybe that law applies to marking the price of things where they are displayed, like right below them or whatever, not necessarily displaying the price of things as you are checking out. Though it is annoying not to have the price shown during check-out in the case of a mistake or if something is more expensive than you originally thought.
