Missouri AG accuses Walgreens of false advertising

BY Dan Berthiaume

St. Louis – Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster is publicly accusing Walgreens of charging customers more for some products at the cash register than their advertised price in the store aisle. According to Bloomberg, Koster said Missouri will sue Walgreens for false and misleading advertising after a two-month undercover investigation of eight stores in cities including St. Louis, Kansas City and Jefferson City.

Investigators were reportedly overcharged 43 times during 205 undercover purchases, in amounts from pennies to $15. Walgreens could face a fine of $1,000 per pricing violation, although Koster said his main purpose is to resolve the issue rather than simply impose fines. Walgreens has not yet publicly responded to the allegations.
