Los Angeles County’s Weights and Measures Bureau is reminding shoppers that they are entitled to the lowest advertised, listed or labeled prices at stores this holiday season.

With a slew of Thanksgiving and Christmas sales upcoming, it’s easy for customers to forget about the deals that drew them to stores in the first place. Oftentimes, checkout prices do not match advertised discounts and customers are overcharged.

To prevent that from happening, shoppers should check receipts before leaving stores. If the receipts reflect incorrect charges, the department encourages consumers to contact store managers or the Weights and Measures Bureau at (800) 665-2900.
