Re: Ripped Off By Wal-Mart

Walmart is becoming a bait and switch store. They advertise one thing and when you go to purchase that item, they don't have it but have a more expensive item for you to buy. They also have some items that are the same but are in different locations of the store with different prices on them to confuse the consumer. I was looking for cup cake papers and through my ventures throughout the store I found 4 different packs of papers in 4 locations with 4 different prices. I also purchased last year the line for my weed wacker that cost $6.97. I needed it again this year and figuring with this being the end of the year if anything the price would be less. To my surprise and horror the price increased to $9.97. And when I mentioned this to a supervisor at Walmart, she told me she bought the identical item last year for $6.97. I guess the 4 owners of Walmart are not happy enough that combined they are worth somewhere in the area of $95 billion, yes that's correct, $95 billion from ripping off the consumers that they need and want more money and don't care who they have to rip off to get it.
