Reader feedback: Don't jump to the whistle

Re: Gotcha! Inspections are up, Volume 11, Number 11, March 21 - March 27, 2005

Only customers can change the way the superstores in Slovakia behave, we are told. What about the inspection agencies? Are they not paid to see that the advertised prices are those charged at the counter? Should we trust the stores or do we need to examine our bill of sale every time we buy goods?

Sales are another way to attract a lot of customers. Perhaps we should forego the opportunity to buy every time a supermarket whistles?
