is this true or not????

I thought that if an item in a grocery store was labeled, say, 10/$1.00, and you only bought one, it should cost just ten cents. Yes or no? chery=va

It's that way here in our stores. Not for you?

It does depend on the store.

Depends on the store. Kroger used to have buy 1 get 1 free or 2/$1.00 items. If you bought only one item, they only charged half price. They went to if you only buy one item, they charged the full price. One day I bought a package of crackers and payed full price. I looked at my receipt after I got home and got mad. We lived really close so I came back the next day and made them give me my free box of crackers. I think dh and the front end manager thought I was probably crazy for that, but I felt like I had been ripped off.

In the stores where I shop, the price usually reads something like:

2/$5.00
$3.00 each

I find it to be the exception that the individual price holds even if you only buy one item.

Normally, the price is only valid when the quantity stated is actually purchased.

In my area it is an even split unless it is posted otherwise. The grocery stores with the scanners always come up even split. The other stores that do it the old way vary usually depending on who is working. (Small town, rural area and loving it!)
