    Prices tags? What’s this, a Dollar Store?

    Of course I can still recall the 1970’s when it wasn’t uncommon to buy a can of vegetables and it had 2-3 layers of stickers owing to prices rising so fast.

    My wife’s uncles have a gas station and I asked why prices were so quick to go up and slow to go down. They claim they had to raise prices on existing gas to afford the higher-priced new gas. But when wholesale prices went down they couldn’t lower the price of existing gas because they had already paid the higher price for it. Nice greedy logic.

    In Michigan, the price of an item is shown by a tag on the shelf and by the UPC barcode on the item itself. There is no need to mark each individual item

    True for upper management….even when proven wrong by their manual….they are not wrong.

    When I worked in my dad’s dime store in the ‘60s one of my jobs was checking in merchandise and putting on price stickers. We had to calculate the selling price from the wholesaler’s invoice. We had a circular slide rule thing the converted price per dozen into individual selling price at a specified markup.
