GET A RECEIPT!!!
Make sure to watch the prices they enter into the register and if the amount they entered is incorrect tell them "The price on the bottle is '$x' and you entered in '$y'. Why is that?"
I have shopped there several times a month for the last roughly 18 months. The only person who I have ever had a problem is the owner. His wife and the fat veteran are both terrific people.
Last week I was told by my S.O. that she had been overcharged by $5 and since she wasn't given a receipt, I confirmed this using the credit card company records and the dollar amounts listed on the bottles. A bit of basic math and then multiplied by the local tax rate.
I assumed it was an honest accident and not worth pursuing since it was only a few bucks. My own fault.
Yesterday I purchased 2 bottles of alcohol and when the first bottle was keyed in manually, not scanned, I noticed that the price was $2 higher than the price listed on the bottle. I asked how much the bottle cost and the owner told me the listed price rather than the number I saw him enter into the register. I told him "I need to have a receipt for this purchase." and he said something like "Of course" then slipped a receipt sized paper in the bag and out I went.
Turns out the "receipt" he gave me was a blank piece of receipt paper. Ran the numbers and sure enough I was overcharged by $2 + tax. I know its not much money. Not even worth the effort of writing this review. However since I only started paying attention last week but that is $7 of being overcharged over two different occasions.
So I cannot help but wonder how much money they have screwed me and my neighbors out of over the last year and a half.
WATCH THE REGISTER PRICES AS THEY ARE KEYED IN AND DON'T JUST DEMAND A RECEIPT. MAKE SURE ITS REAL!
All those dollars add up quickly.
I do plan on taking my credit card receipts and other info collected to the BBB and the CBI since I'm pretty sure they are keeping two sets of records to ensure that the money he has stolen goes straight to the pocket.
Again, it is only the owner doing this regularly and the old vet is probably unaware of the scam.
While friendly, they are thieves and I would rate lower than "1 star" if I could.
