*NEWS* Customer sues Wal-Mart over 2 cents

October 12, 2011

This story actually made me laugh… Now I am not the biggest fans of Walmart right now ( many of you know why…) but I am not going to be suing them and honestly I do not think this women should of either. I know it really is not about the “two cents” but my “two cents” is one’s time is more valuable then to waste it trying to make a point.

Here is the story:

Mary Bach bought a package of Banquet Brown ‘N Serve sausage labeled 98 cents at the freezer case. But it rang up for 2 cents more. When she pointed out the discrepancy, the cashier gave her the lower price. Six days later, it happened again. Murrysville District Judge Charles Conway sided with Bach in her civil lawsuit alleging unfair trade practices. He awarded Bach $100 in damages, plus about $80 in court costs.

The retail behemoth argued that Banquet had just changed the package and the UPC, so the old ones were ringing up for 98 cents and the new packages cost a buck. Both the old and new were still being sold by the store.

Wal-Mart also argued that Bach was just looking for another excuse to sue the Delmont, Pa., store. She’s sued that Pittsburgh area store four times before over similar allegations.  She has also successfully sued Kmart. She sounds like a lovely person right?


What do you think? I might being a little harsh on her – but I really do not like drama like that. I would love your take on it :)



Thanks! MSN
