Do you shop at Target? You are not going to want to hear this. You may be getting double charged for some of your items?
Recently a report was published on ABC that did some under cover investigating. They discovered that the exact same items found in the pharmacy sections were priced higher in the baby aisle…not just by a few pennies either.
In some cases the difference was significant – $1.60 higher for just one item! The results were shocking and have upset some customers. Let us know what you think below!
“Target manager shocked by price difference-
While still undercover, investigators questioned a manager about the markups. He said he had no idea it was happening.
“Wow, that’s crazy. I buy stuff here,” he said. “I usually go to the pharmacy part, which one is cheaper do you think?”
Parents also had no clue they were spending more when buying these items from the baby aisle.
“I’m irritated because my kids go through that stuff like it’s water,” one mom said. “That’s crazy.” ”
After being questioned and the news coming out Target has issued the following statement regarding the pricing errors.
“Accurate pricing is important to Target, and we value the trust that our guests place in us. We researched this issue and found an error in our pricing system affecting these four products. (including Tylenol, 2 types of Motrin and Gripe Water.)
We apologize for this inadvertent error and the confusion it has caused. Once we were made aware of the issue, we updated the pricing systems to reflect accurate and consistent pricing of these dually-located items. The consistent, revised pricing is now displayed in our store.
Guests who bought these items within the baby department can bring their receipt to Guest Service at their local Target store, and the price difference will be refunded.”
