Dam.....I'll have to stop swopping the cheaper price tags onto more expensive goodsDrudgeon":1nubip1f said:That is correct, I'm afraid that's an old myth Bob, I believe the legal term for a price tag is something along the lines of 'an invitation to treat' and if the customer gets to the cash desks and the sales person realises a pricing error has been made, they are quite within their rights to refuse to sell at the lower 'wrong' price. Many people though believe as you have said, that they are legally obliged to sell at the 'ticket price'.phil.p":1nubip1f said:No, they are under no obligation to sell at that price and I think that's been the case for a long time.Random Orbital Bob":1nubip1f said:Has that changed somewhat recently then as my understanding has always been that if the retailer makes a labelling error they are obliged to sell it at the advertised price?
Its only when things kick off on UKW and toys start flying from prams that I find it worth following a thread :wink:nev":2z9iuluc said:Please keep it civil gentlemen. We can agree to disagree without resorting to insults. (I Hope!)

I was giving an example of how I normally price a job. I'm not talking specifically timber. A lot of the materials I use in the course of my work have regular price fluctuations. I offer my quotes as valid for 60 days normally, in which time materials could have gone up or down by as much as 30%. I do have this written into my contract terms as standard, which the customer reads and then signs. So if they then decide they don't want to pay the price hike, they forfeit their deposit. All my quotes are itemised so they know exactly where the increases are going.
