Hi! LegalGems here. I'll do my best to assist you.I can only provide general information, so a follow up consult with a private lawyer is recommended. In order for there to be a binding contract, there needs to be an offer and an acceptance. Since their was an acceptance and confirmation of that acceptance, most courts would consider that a binding contract. However, mistake can be grounds for voiding a contract, so if the seller can show that it was an error, and not with intent, the court has discretion to side with the seller. Generally, however, the store will accommodate, as a matter of good faith/good will, the consumer by offering the price at the advertised price. They generally are not liable for false advertising, as that requires actual intent (versus negligence) http://www.legislature.mi.gov/documents/mcl/pdf/mcl-750-33.pdf
