Hi Guys

Just wanted to know some info,

I went into my local hobby shop, very nice, always helpful, but due to the VAt going up to 20% in the uk the price you pay at the till is not the price which is on the Label.

Yesterday i went to buy a servo, the label said reduced to £68.99 when he scanned it the price came up as £83.99 and when he looked on the system it was £79.99, he made the point that the VAt had gone up
hence the reason for the slight increase from &79.99 to £83.99

I ended up being charged £79.99,which i was happy with,

My question is, as i used to be involved with trade descriptions and enforce the sale of goods act, working for local authority, is the price on the label is legally the price they have to charge.. i have bought a lot from my local shop and the price i pay at the till is always different to what is on the price tag.

And if their labels havent been updated, isn't it their fault for not re stickering the parts ?

I am not unhappy but just thought it was interesting.. and if any other model shops are doing the same thing..

Matt

Sounds like the price on sticker is suggested retail price from manufacturer . What the shop charges is up to them but shop cant advertise below a price given from distributor. This helps businesses to be competitive but also on a level playing field.

I stole it ,flew it and gave it back ;)

Its Nothing bUT B.S,I have seen it before Our boss made us do it years ago in another Trade,We would take the price tag and show the customer,then take the Calculater and add on the Vat,it was done for a while until a customer went Mad,then it was stopped,The Shop you Bought it from should have the Price including the Vat,Most probably kept the vat of so it doesnt look to expensive.you get the surprise when paying at the till.
