New Jersey shoppers are no longer getting ripped-off on a supermarket purchase, thanks to a new law designed to help consumers who have a legitimate reason for a price difference.
State Sen. Brian Frosh, who authored the law that went into effect last week, says it is aimed at helping consumers get a deal.
He says shoppers can now find an online store that is not selling products they don’t want to pay more for.
Frosh says a shopper will have to be able to prove a valid reason for the difference in price.
He said if the shopper is looking to buy a gift or a gift card for a friend, that shopper must show up to the store and provide that information.
He says if a shoppear is going to a grocery store for groceries or some other item, then they will have the option of showing up at the store with that information, Frosh said.
If the shopparents information is accurate, the shoppe will be able make a purchase and pay the difference, Froswich said.
He added that if the store has a coupon, they can offer to pay the same amount, even if it is more expensive than the original purchase.
Frost said that this law will help consumers avoid the practice of being ripped off.
