I seem to recall reading somewhere that stores in the US are legally obligated to honor a mismarked price on merchandise, no matter how far off the prices is. Is this true? I was in a Tower Records yesterday and found two copies of the Dave Brubeck Time Out multi-channel SACD marked $12.99 each. All other Sony multi-channel SACDs were marked $21.99, so I figured it was possible that someone priced the Brubeck SACDs as CDs (I assumed the CD was $12.99). However, I have seen some Sony SACDs priced very reasonably at Best Buy (Weather Report Heavy Weather for $11.99 and Top Gun for $12.99), and these prices were correct, so I thought maybe the Brubeck SACD was simply priced lower than the others. I took the Brubeck SACD to the cashier, and when he scanned it, he said it was $21.99 and that $12.99 was the price of the CD. He readily admitted that someone put the wrong price tag on it. When I told him that there was another copy of the SACD marked $12.99 and that I assumed that $12.99 was correct, he asked an employee to re-tag both copies. Should Tower have honored the low price for me? I have seen stores honor low prices marked in error, and when I worked retail back when I was in high school, we were told to do just that. I thought Tower would have honored the $12.99 price for me and then changed the price on the other copy. In the end, I didn't buy the SACD. Other stores in my area have or will have it for less than $21.99. By the way, I have seen statements in sale fliers stating, "Not responsible for typographical errors", but that doesn't really apply here. The Brubeck SACD was not advertised in print. Anyway, I wasn't trying to swindle Tower, but I thought they would honor the low price because it seems that most stores do.
