California – A proposed class action lawsuit has been filed in California federal court against Macy’s and its wholly-owned division Bloomingdale’s alleging that the companies engage in deceptive and misleading marketing of merchandise.
Plaintiff Zohreh Farhang filed the complaint against Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s alleging that its retail and outlet stores “misrepresented the nature and amount of price discounts on products sold in their regular and outlet stores.”
Farhang claims that Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s artificially inflates the regular prices of items and these listed prices “did not represent a bona fide price at which they previously sold products or the prevailing market price for such items.”
After the department stores allegedly marked up the prices, they went on to mark the items on sale for a reduced price, which was supposed to be a significant discount off of the purported original, regular or suggested retail price, Farhang claims
“In some instances, they represented that the listed or original price was two or more times the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (‘MSRP’), and then offered the item at a purported 50% or more discount price which was in fact the original MSRP,” the complaint reads.
