What’s wrong with THIS picture?!?!?
I’ve sort of ‘known’ that they did ‘this kind of thing’ for years. You can often see ‘several layers’ of price tags carefully place perfectly on top of each other. But to do it THIS blatantly!?!?! And then over the loud speaker I hear, “Goo afternoon Goodwill shoppers. Our color tag of the week is PURPLE. all items with a purple color tag are half off.
And it wasn’t just that one item. There were quite a few. I really wanted to ‘call them out’ on this; especially since the purple tag is TOTALLY visible. Alas, it was late in the day and I was not feeling at all well. (recently diagnosed with plantar fasciiatis. OH JOY!) My foot just hurt so bad that I didn’t ‘have the fight in me’. But I did take pictures so I could at least BLOG SHAME them.
I found it EXTRA annoying because earlier this week, at a different GW,I had been informed that they are no longer giving out reward points with their club cards. Um, Okay. Card holders will still get a small discount on purchases over a certain dollar amount; but no accumulating points and no $10.00 ‘coupon; every time you reach 500 points.
I’m really quite flabbergasted at this. They are cutting back on shoppers benefits and charging us MORE (in the long run) so that they can spend more on paying employees to ‘change price tags’?!?!?
Oh, and BTW, you can’t even GET their club cards anymore. They stopped issuing them after only a couple of years, but had continued to honor them. AND the cashier’s STILL ask every shopper if you have a club card?!?!?
So what would they say if a customer said, “No, but I’d love to get one! How do I sign up?”
Oh you can’t get them anymore.
They why do you ask everyone if the HAVE one?!?!
BADwill. For shame!
