So this is my rant of the day (although this happened yesterday). I went to Michael's over my lunch hour armed with my 40% off coupon. That is really the only reason I've been going to my local box stores - just to use my 40% off coupon on one item and that is it. I picked up the border punch I wanted and turned to walk back to the register when I noticed a sign that Bazzill card stock is all 40% off. I was shocked to see that the racks were fully stocked (this should have been my first clue). I spent 15 minutes picking out colors I thought I could use. I get up to the check out and the lady is ringing me up and 3/4 of the way through I noticed that the cardstock is not ringing up on sale. I asked the lady about it and she uses her earpiece thing to ask the manager about the "cardboard" not being on sale. We wait several minutes while the manager checks on it (I actually saw her leave her office and walk towards the cardstock area) and she comes back and says no, it's not on sale. So then I have to wait while the checkout lady voids each piece of paper out off the transaction. After I pay, I walked back to the cardstock section and there remains the sign saying 40% off. But when I look at the very bottom in tiny type it says the sale ended two days ago.
Up to this point I was only mildly annoyed. What annoys me more than anything is that the manager walked back there, saw the incorrect signs and then LEFT THEM CLEARLY DISPLAYED.
I get that they could have made a mistake and forgotten to remove them. But why would you leave them up? I feel like they are really trying to be deceptive and hope people pick up items and won't notice they ringing up at full price.
I would like to say I will never shop there again but truthfully I will probably continue to use my 40% off coupon. But you can bet I won't be purchasing anything beyond that one item anytime soon.
