Kmart Pays $15,000 Fine For Not Putting Price Tags On Merchandise

Kmart has paid a $15,000 fine to Westchester County, NY for not putting price tags on its merchandise. “Westchester’s law is clear: Items on store shelves must be clearly marked with a price tag, so consumers can verify how much an item costs and be sure that they are being charged the correct price at the checkout register,” County Executive Andy Spano told Lower Hudson Online.

Whoops. According to the report, many of the unmarked items at the Westchester County store were part of the Martha Stewart Collection. Scandalous! —MEGHANN MARCO
