Healthy Pleasures :Perpetual Rip off

Lanzae | Feb 20, 2003 05:21 PM

I moved from the Village to Carroll Gardens in July and had not been to Healthy Pleasures on University for several months. When I used to live near them I went there every so often until I realized that every time (I am not exaggerating) the cash register scanned products at the wrong price. I had to be vigilant and watch the scanner closely. After a few talks with the manager, I decided not to shop there anymore (being overpriced was also a reason). So just the other day, I was with a friend and we decided to pop in for a few things since it was getting late. I wasn't going to buy anything until I saw that red cabbage was on sale for 79 cents a pound. It was the only item I brought to the register, I paid and sure enough I looked at the reciept and they had charged me 99 cents a pound.
I simply couldn't believe it! I told the manager I thought what they did was dishonorable and he was quite snippy (he mocked, "Oh yeah, we're out to get you") and said it was just that they hadn't entered into the computer yet. I could understand if it were 10 am but it was 6pm meaning they had been ripping people off ALL DAY. Meanwhile, he was also engaged in an argument with another customer about rotten OJ that he wouldn't accept as a return.
I apologize for the rant but I really can't stand that place. How can they stay in business?
