They have the option to take you to small claims court, in some locations - charge your debit/credit card, and if they so choose - sue for 'damages'.

now, you have to realize that these laws are in place for $.01 - 9,999,999 priced items. So while it may sound crazy for a $250 transaction, a $10k transaction where the profit margins are VERY slim, would entice a retailer to recoup their losses.

For example, many many retail items are sold with a profit margin of less than 50%. Usually accessories are the only items that are around the 50% margin, and thus they push those items heavily. Hell, Best buy endures because they sell alot of VERY overpriced accessories for example, while their tv markups are about 3-20% on average. Better yet, take all the stuff back and ask for your money back completely. Buy everything online or support another store. Don't make a scene as , it's a small world and you never know when you will need to work with someone from that location or, need something from that place desperately for example.

The burden of proof is on the party attempting to recoup their loss , keep in mind.

If you signed an invoice for example, showing the price as say $250, you received a copy and they kept a copy; however, they only charged you $150 - it's well within their rights to charge you the other $100. It's up to you if you want to chalk it up to it was a human mistake by a human being, and not some evil corporation playing games with you to get more money so they could light cigars with $100 bills.

In your case, for what they are asking, I would ask if it was a prank. There has to be more to this story that we are not hearing, I don't think the OP is being completely forthcoming on this; however, if he is - then the retailer asking for $20 more due to underpayment, is simply ON CRACK. Tell them to go pound salt.

Thats all fine and dandy but they would lose in court. It was not him that shorted them money rather the store giving him the boots for that discount. It was there error not his and he payed the price in full. Its a breech of trust to try to extort more money after the sale. Also all the facts back him up, not them. Its his word vs. theirs and the commitment was done when he paid their price at the store. The owner is just being greedy and a dick.

jdmccright The law is on your side. Tell them to fuck off or you will call the cops for harassment. If they charge your card anyway let the card company sue there ass.

AWNOW For fucksake I hope you did not go back to that store and let them charge you $20 more.

BurtonAvenger I worked retail for over 10 years in snowboard shops. You NEVER do that, if you fuck up you take the loss and chalk it up as a learning experience. Tell them to suck a dick.

Also, screw the store for telling you to come back and pay more. They screwed up, they need to eat the loss. Unless you want to just return the items for a full refund, then do so, but no way in hell should you go back and pay more, you are morally and legally in the clear. A store that made a mistake in my favor, then asks me to come back, would never see my business again. I say this as a guy who's managed several places, and I would never ask a customer to make up for a mistake I or an employee has made.

The place is called 'neptune ski and dive' and is located in Nashville tn.

I Personally have no ties with them. I think everything they have is at least a year or two old, and they overcharge like crazy. I was on the fence before, but now I realize I'm not being a dick for not wanting to go back.

I kept the $240 ruler restricted (bought at sun and ski sport) and swapped the 2012 $179 rulers for the i/os and a chesty strap. I paid an extra 16 dollars for the swap. After leaving they called and asked if I could give them my card info over the phone to fix the $20 error, or if I could come in and do it. My thought was to return it and tell them to fuck off.

snowklinger I always tell people "I make 10 bucks an hour (just for example) at work, you can't AFFORD the value of my off time."

Imagine u could be riding instead of dealing with them lol.

Hell even internet porn or taking a poop is more worthwhile.

jdmccright Tell them to come get them if they want. Their screw up not yours and all sales are final.
