CONSUMER PROFILING/FALSE/DECEPTIVE ADVERTISING - STOCK POT


Ikea advertised a stockpot on sale for $9.99 on Sunday March 22, 2009 for that one day only. THE FLYER ADVERTISED ONE PER HOUSEHOLD (WHICH WAS ALSO NONSENSE SINCE I WITNESSED SEVERAL INDIVIDUAL PEOPLE WALKING OUT WITH 2, 3 OR EVEN 4 POTS PER PERSON) and said nothing about a voucher or coupon (COULD THAT BE BECAUSE ONLY CERTAIN STORES WERE TARGETED FOR THIS NONSENSE TO APPLY ONLY TO CERTAIN PEOPLE AND TO PUT THIS IN THE FLYER WOULD HAVE MADE ALL IKEA STORES SUBJECT TO THIS VOUCHER/COUPON NONSENSE). I arrived at the store at 10:00 am only to be told they were sold out (NOT OF POTS BUT OF VOUCHERS) and you had to have a voucher to obtain a pot at that price. Since they cannot get away with putting just a few sale items out on shelves when there is a sale, they came up with this voucher/coupon crap and of course they only made 1000 vouchers. If an item is on sale, does that not mean all of those items that they have in stock (HENCE UNTIL SUPPLY LASTS). Because their greed blinds them and causes them to hold back some of those items to sell at regular price, they are actually loosing money. More people bought those pots at the sale price than at regular price of $34.95, (South Philly Ikea made approximately $10,000.00 in less than an hour) therefore selling more and making more money. If Ikea weren’t so greedy and deceptive, they would be able to see that and allowed all who were there to purchase a pot, get one, voucher or no voucher. At any rate, I had about 8 people with me who were all going to buy pots and other items, but because Ikea was so deceptive in their advertising and denied us and many more the right to purchase those pots at that price, they have lost at least 20 customers that I know of and I can assure you that I will do everything in my power to encourage those within my sphere of influence not to patronize Ikea stores ever again.
