A proposed class action lawsuit alleges that the art and craft retailer Hobby Lobby Stores Inc., which has over 600 locations in 35 states, misleads consumers with its coupons. The complaint states that customers who use a percentage-based coupon on items which are “always on sale” at Hobby Lobby do not get the full benefit of their coupons. That is because Hobby Lobby stores calculate percentage coupons off the “regular” price, even for items that are never sold at that price, according to the lawsuit.
The Hobby Lobby misleading coupon class action lawsuit claims that “many items are ‘always’ on sale, but coupon discounts are taken from a price the item never sells at, which is most definitely not the regular price referenced in the coupon.” The complaint continues, “Simply put, the ‘Regular’ price is the price at which an item is ‘regularly’ sold,” and asserts that Hobby Lobby’s practice of calculating coupon reductions from false “regular” prices is a violation of state consumer protection laws.
