Mother’s Day is that time of year where Americans and Canadians thank our mothers for the awesome job in raising us. In Metro, they were selling two dozen roses, 2 for $25, versus the retail price of $17.99. On Friday afternoon, my wife and I were shopping at the Bathurst and Lawrence branch, and I decided to pleasantly surprise her with them while she was doing other shopping in the store.
When I reached the counter, the lady scanned both roses and charged my $40.95. I asked why so much, that it was on sale. Her supervisor explained to me that “red roses aren’t included.” I snapped a picture and explained that it doesn’t say that on the sign. She said that generally this is the case. Being that there was a massive line and I was wearing a Yarmulke I wasn’t in the mood to argue. I simply went back and chose the reddest roses that weren’t red, then paid.
Looking at the flyer, I saw that the red roses were indeed on sale. Metro in fact displayed red roses to prove a point, and didn’t mention anywhere that red roses weren’t included! Why did they false advertise?!?
As someone that has shelled out thousands of dollars at that place, I want compensation.
