We didn't make it :-(
I was wrong about the date of the doc appt., it's next monday.
As far as superstore, WE don't love it, and we try to shop there as little as possible. We only buy jam, cheese, peanut butter, dressing, olives, and cat food there.
Wanna know why? It was about a year ago, so I may not get all the details. We were shopping for a replacement water filter for our Britta. We looked at the PC brand, since they were cheaper, and saw a 3 pk listed at $7.99, a single was $3.99. Says it fits most filters. We decided to try the single for now
We get to the checkout with our weekly haul, and it rings in at $4.99. If you are familiar with the Scanning Code of practice, if an iten scans differently than a listed price, you get the first item free, up to $10.
So we brought it to the attention of the clerk. He paged the General Merchandise Manager, who brought down a sticker showing that $4.99 was the price. He actually brought the sticker that sticks on the shelf. We nodded and bought the item. We needed a filter, so we bought it anyway. After we paid and walked away, we realized we were both sure it said $3.99. The manager had assured us that there was nothing anywhere around the filters with the price of $3.99. So I guess we were both seeing things. I ran back to check, and the price stikcer for $3.99 was gone. So we hopped in the car. Dh decided to drive to another superstore to check them out. We drove from Portland st. to Cole Harbour ( just a few minutes), and he ran in. Their filters were $4.99 for a single and $11.99 for a 3 pk. We drove back to Portland st. and went to the customer service, and I returned the single, while dh went back to the aisle and got the $7.99 sticker and a 3 pk. When we tried to purchase the 3 pk, it came up at $11.99. I didn't pay for them, I told them the price was different, they said to go to cust. service. By then dh had the sticker that said $7.99, so we confronted them nicely. She called the manager again, and first he asked acusatorily where we got the sticker. We told him. He informed us there were two plaves they kept filters. Then dh confronted him on how he *removed* the $3.99 sticker and lied to us, telling us *we* were seeing things. Dh also confronted him, saying that he printed off the $4.99 sticker ( we later realized he probably got it from the *other* filter section). So after a heated debate between dh and the GM manager, the manager finally huffed that we could have the 3 pk for $7.99. DH said, "No, we're going to get it for free, as set out by the scanning code of practice" So he huffed away muttering to the customer service lady to give them to us.
When we got home, one of the filters had been stolen, so it was really a 2 pk, and they were only replacement carbon for the cartridge that was the single, so we couldn't use them anyway. After complaining, we were assured that he no longer worked there. We still see him when we go there, though. We were given a $10 gift card, so in the end we did get the filters and monetary compensation, but the fact that this guy, who lied to us, and told us we were seeing things, still works at the store.
Sorry for the vent, but that is why we try to shop at the superstore as little as possible.
We are still interested in the art thingy!
