An advert come through the door advertising Debenhams 'Blue Cross Sale', Up to 70% off, as i needed a new pair of chino's, I went over there and found a pair that I liked the look of. I looked for the price on the ticket-not there, checked around the stand they were on, and noticed that NONE of the items had price tags or prices displayed.
I then found an assistant and asked her the price of the chino's and her reply was." Take them to the checkout and when they ring up the sale you will know the price".
To me that is unacceptable- and I walked out of the shop and bought a pair elsewhere.
BT. That is the way to do it of course. What annoys me is that when I worked in pub management we had to have the prices displayed in a prominent place for the customer to see. I think that should apply to all retail establishments.
I tend to find 'Guess the price' is becoming more popular in some places. At least in one or two places, the assistant as taken the item, and returned a short time later with the price. By that time I have decided I didn't want the item?.
