Old Navy: Buyer Beware

We went to buy some clothes for the kids today. Four of the 5 items we brought up to the register rang up for at least 50% more than we thought they were going to be. Had we not been paying attention, we would have been charged $74 instead of $50. Why did this happen? I went back to look at the sign for the baja sweatshirts we tried to buy. I took a look at the sign on the rack (and snapped a picture of it too). How much do you think the tops are? Can you read the tiny letters above and to the left of the “$10” that say “khaki pants” referring to the pants below? Neither could we. The actual price of the bajas was $14.50. The pants had a similar setup and were actually $16.50 while we thought they were $10. As everyone should try to do in order to control the marketplace, we did not purchase any of the “mislabeled” items. When in Old Navy … Buyer beware.

  1. I always look at the actual tag on the clothes. Maybe the labeling was intentional, but you have to remember that the staff in these stores are overworked and underpaid, and sometimes mistakes are made.

    I feel your pain, but this is what happens when you blindly follow the signs and don’t pay attention to the fine print.

    At least you caught it before you paid. I would have been so mad at myself if I had gotten home and realized the mistake!
