Recently I went to one of the large chain stores that begins with W. They always advertise low prices and state they are going lower. Also they emphasize friendliness to customers.
In the Ladies Department was a table with very nice printed fleece tops. Each one had a design and was very soft. I noticed the big sign on the table and it was $7.00. So these nice tops were supposed to be priced at $7.00. The original price was $9.99.
I choose a nice mint green one with metallic unicorns on it. Before I went to the check out….I went to the price checking machine and checked all the prices of what I was buying in the shopping cart. Yes…this fleece top was $7.00.
When I went to the cashier, she rang up most of my items. When she came to the fleece top…..she looked at it. I said it is $7.00 because it was on the $7.00 counter.
She said to me…just because something was on the $7.00 table doesn’t mean it is $7.00.
Okay…..so….what does this reasoning mean? When the price rang up—$7.00—her theory did not hold up.
