The concerned citizen experienced an incident where you can see on the picture that the price on the shelf is different on the price indicated on the receipt.

They said it to the branch manager but the manager said that they just forgot to update the prices on the shelf that is why it reflected differently on the receipt. But the victim of the kind of scheme was not satisfied with what the manager reasoned out because it is so injustice especially to those consumers who are on a budget and are basing on the prices indicated on the shelves. If a business displays more than one price for the same item, this is called multiple pricing. Many people commented on the said post:

The business must sell the item for the lowest “displayed price” or withdraw the item for sale until the price discrepancy is fixed.
