Yes and yes.
Back when they had their 50% off sale, some stores said the motors were on
sale too. Others didn't. Which is true? BTSOOM!
The ad mentioned by name Estes, Quest, and Custom, but everyone gave me the
same deal on Holverson and Aerotech, and once when I asked even on the
Meteor baking soda rocket.
And back when Plastic models were on sale a few weeks earlier, 3 stores each
gave me the same deal on a rocket kit.
During the rocket sale, I bought a bunch of clearance stuff. It wasn't until
the 5th store or so that someone pointed out that the flier said clearance
prices are not subject to the discount. They had some stuff on clearance for
less of a discount than the half price cale, but I couldn't talk them into
instead giving me half off the list price, so I left them behind.
And god help you if you want something and it's not priced. They have to go
back and find another priced item on the shelf. Last one? Gotta go back to
the managers office, and have him look it up in the price book. manager gone
for the day? Sorry, but we have no way of finding out what the price is!
Then of course there is the standard issue of there being 5 of the same item
on the shelf, and three different prices for them.
They are still in the 60s put a price sticker on every item, and manually
key in the price sticker at the register. They don't have a clue what their
current inventoryu is, or even how much rocket stuff they sold during their
recent half off sale.
