TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum said his office has reached an agreement with Boise, Idaho-based Albertsons LLC over allegations that some of the company’s stores in Florida refused to honor sales prices advertised in weekly fliers as the stores were closing.
Albertsons LLC, which has sold or closed much of its Florida store base in the last year, agreed to pay $200,000 in consumer restitution, fees and costs.
The complaint arose last summer when customers notified the AG’s office that the company, which is separate from the Supervalu-owned Albertsons chain, was not honoring advertised prices in some locations that were preparing to close.
Under the agreement, Albertsons will provide consumer restitution to any customers who were shopping for certain items based on their sales prices in the flier, but were unable to find the advertised prices in the stores during a four-week period in July and August.
