I'm sure everybody who reads this will have had many experiences with prices at the till differing from the prices on the product, parimarily because in this day in age The Warehouse are still obsessed by pricing goods with pricing guns - a manual process that uses precious time and is completely unnecessary considering the goods are scanned at checkout anyway!
I couldn't help but notice this U2 Vertigo DVD while I was browing the DVD stands today. Around 15 copies of the DVD had signs of 3 or 4 price stickers on them. Staff have had to waste time pricing goods, repricing them when the price changed, obviously attempt to remove those 2 tags, reprice the DVD at $22.99 and then finally reduce it to $18.99
With inefficient business practices like this it's no wonder the company is performing so poorly.

However, I would want to know the price of soemhting before I went to the counter. The sticker/ price tag would have to be somewhere. Else, have scanners about the store to show latest price - just like in K Mart.

Warehouse have added bar code scanners for public in stores in Petone and Lower Hutt. It's interesting that not all of them are always functional. The pile of rubble, which is the common layout for goods, in Warehouse is sometimes fun to just sift through. Prime motivation to go to such a place is the bargains and discounts. So , the Big Red Shed, should continue to focus on lower prices.
