How Much Did I Save If I Don’t Buy Anything?

Office Max Shuts Down Due To Power Outage That’s Already Over

Office Max Shuts Down Due To Power Outage That’s Already Over

Kaleb has the bad fortune (maybe) to live in a part of the Midwest where it snowed at the beginning of May this year. The storm was so bad that it led to a power outage, and the power outage led to some businesses closing. While the power was out. In the case of one Office Max, every business around them was bustling with activity while they remained closed.
It was the sign on the door of the fully lit store saying that the closure was due too [sic] the power outage that really got to Kaleb. [More]

This fuzzy math that Laurie found at Office Max seems like your everyday pricing error– a stupid sign posted by bored and underpaid worker who doesn’t bother to question authority. But look deeper. That sign says “As advertised.” That means that Office Max put out a circular or other advertisement bragging that they’re selling correction tape for one cent more than they normally do.

Greg's Office Max Freakout

Greg's Office Max Freakout

This guy on San Fran’s “Woody Show” goes into Office Max, twice, and loses his shit after every item he brings up to the counter rings up higher than its shelf-price. Not only does no one seem to care, one employee even insinuates that the complainant might be partially at fault for Office Max’s inability to shelve things in the right place. Neither disc jockey, producer, crazed customer, Office Max employees number 1 and 2, nor Office Max Manager seem to realize that if the item is found on the store shelves under a certain price, as long as the description matches the product, the store has to honor the price. It’s the law. In addition to a an amusing radio clip and animation, The Woody Show also has material here for a complaint to their state’s Attorney General. Video, inside…
