SANTA'S CHECKING RECEIPTS, HE'S CHECKING THEM TWICE--YOU SHOULD TOO!

 

Cash registers ring, are you listening? Black Friday’s back, sales are glistening! Make sure your shopping is sweet, double check your receipts.

So you’re not accidentally overcharged by faulty cash register price scanners.

THE HOLIDAY SHOPPING SEASON IS BACK, CHECK THOSE RECEIPTS!

 

Let the shopping — and receipt-checking — begin!

Black Friday and the holiday season mean the shopping-est time of the year is back. The County wants to remind shoppers to double-check all receipts to protect themselves from being overcharged by faulty cash register price scanners.
