I went into fastenal today to buy some stainless metric hex nuts. I need them ASAP, and McMaster won't have it to me in time unfortunately. So I find them at the store, it was 20 bucks for a pack of 50 of the m10 type. And it was 12 for a pack of 100 m8's.
Well, I don't even need half of htat, but that's about what I would have paid at McMaster by the time shipping is factored in, so I went for it.
I go to the clerk, give him my check card, and he announces the total:
I am thinking, wtf? Something is obviously not right. 20+12 = 62? There is no sales tax in NH...
So I ask him what is going on, that the sticker right on it said 20 for the m10 and 12 for the m8's. He says the stickers are "like 5 years old" and that this is the new price. I said no thanks, and I'll go for grade 5 zinc plated. Which by the way came up to a grand total of just under 15 dollars.
I mentioned to him that he may want to update this information, the new prices that is. I figure customers probably want to know what something costs before they checkout...
He says it's company policy not to change the sticker.
Is this actually legal?
