My beef with grocery stores recently

I don't know if anyone else has noticed this, but those of you who frequent Loblaws and although I don't go often I assume Provigo also - the new catch of pricing something 2 for the price of..... BUT, you only get the price if you buy 2 of those items. The mention that you have to buy two is written in teeny weeny script on the "sticker advertising the special".

I have done a lot of shopping, and I mean a lot of shopping in the past 10 years and I have never encountered this problem. When things were 2 for the price of...... if you only got one, you didn't pay the regular price, you paid the sale price.

For example - 2 for $4 well, in the old day, if you only got one, you'd pay $2. Now you'll pay the regular price for one - if one is all you buy.

I hate it when stores, or their managers or whoever decides this, try to take advantage of people not noticing the discrepancy at the cash.

PS: Please don't get mad at the cashiers- it's not their fault. If you have an issue with this, speak to the manager.
