Saks 5th Suing Customer
 

Saks Fifth Avenue Sues Customer Over Mis-Priced Jewelry Sale

Long story short, customer buys a jewelry set for $28,000 (which is the price she was told by the sales associate) but the real price was $76,000. So now Saks is suing her cuz she won't give it back.

What would you do?

Honestly, I think its Saks fault. I work retail and if a sign says the shirt is $9.99 we have to sell it to the customer for that, even if we later find out the sign should have said $12.99. It's our responsibility to sell the item to the customer at the price advertised or told. Granted, thats not a $50,000 difference, but still.

I think saks should eat it, too.
Its not as if the customer switched a ticket or anything. (well, not that I know.. I wasn't there or anything)

I agree if thats the price and she asked then I think its on them, happens to me at nordies rack something is marked something and then rings up different or SA changed price? should I bring back my clothing :IDK they need to train their SA better I guess

idalis 12-03-2008 07:37 PM

I would say the claim could more likely be with the SA for negligently mis-entering the price

who8mahrice 12-03-2008 08:36 PM

The customer should counter-sue for false advertisement then.

saks doesn't have a case

Hipslikemonroe 12-04-2008 12:30 AM

Easy one! Saks will lose! :)

:roll
poor Sak's.
I wish I was that customer! I'd tell them to kiss my ass.

i hate saks. :)

Lame. Why not spend this money on positive advertising. Really stupid on their part in the midst of an economic slowdown.

Stupid move, Saks. :rolleyes:

That's crazy. I wouldn't think they would want to bother wasting their time/money to sue.

idalis 12-04-2008 08:51 AM

Yeah they have no case here. TBH though, if i was the buyer, i'd return the thing. Seems the ethical thing to do to me

brody 12-04-2008 09:31 AM

^ Yes, it is ethical only because the SA is probably in shit for an honest mistake I would return it for that reason, but certainly not after this crap.

Dojoqueen 12-04-2008 09:48 AM

Yeah, I'd have to return it too. Damn conscience. :jumping

I might have considered returning it until finding out that Saks was suing me. Then I definitely wouldn't. :shake

avatar 12-04-2008 02:19 PM

i sure as shit wouldn't return it, wtf is wrong with you

agent 12-04-2008 02:26 PM

hehe saks wouldn't have to sue you girls (customer), if you had given it back :)

i don't know, I'd be tempted to not return it, but wth, I don't even have the 30k :o

pianochica 12-04-2008 04:00 PM

^I would resell it and make some of that $ back :devil

If you'd have returned it, it would never have come to a suit anyway.

I could just never in good conscience wear/own something of that kind of value i essentially had not paid for.

Mikeylikes29 12-04-2008 05:01 PM

I think its the sales Assistant fault...

Wonder how they could really justify suing the customer, its not like she stole?

this. If you walk into a store for a product and its the stores responsibility to tell you how much money they want for said product, how can they penalize the customer who clearly had the intention of BUYING the product and not STEAL it? I wouldnt return it either that kind of money is pennies to them.

ranger 12-04-2008 10:14 PM

Definately the SA's fault. The only case Sak might have would be against the SA.
