Are you sure that the cashier has to push a button to get the sale price? As long as the correct price comes out in what you are charged, you can't apply SCOP.sahilz wrote: ↑May 17th, 2010 2:57 pmQuestion about SDM at Bay/Adelaide PATH, and maybe others using this system.
The on-sale or clearance items always ring up on regular price, and the cashiers have to press a button, maybe two to show the advertised price.
So the receipt always look like:
Item 1 --------- Original Price
***Sale ----------- Advertised price
Is this not against the rules of SCOP? This is the only store I have encountered that has this POS system.
I haven't been to a SDM store with a system like this. But it sounds similar to what some Zellers stores have. On the display, the original price comes out but it does ring up properly on the receipt. It is really confusing. The first time I saw it, I kept questioning the price and the cashier had to keep looking at the receipt to see if they were going in properly. The last time I was there, I was buying cat food cans that were "buy more and save" so the cashier knew the price was coming up right when "buy more and save" came under the price even thought the original price was displaying on the screen. A number of cans didn't come up this way and she was able to correct them before finalizing the sale.
I know that stores are supposed to display the price to the customer as they ring in so I wonder if this violates some law because the price isn't displaying correctly?
