Customer Question

I stop at a Shell station several times a week. The price is marked 1.19 for an item in a rack. She charges me 1.50. Price after taxes should be no more than 1.29. She says no one entered new prices yet. This has been going on at this store for about 2 years.

Hello. My name is***** will be happy to answer your question.
I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.

In a situation like this, where the merchant / business does not clearly mark their prices or the price charged is higher than the marked price, a formal complaint can be filed with the local Better Business Bureau at and also a complaint can be filed with South Carolina Department of Consumer Affairs at

These agencies will investigate your complaint and will take proper action based on the findings of their investigation.

I wish you the best of luck!
