ALBANY, NY – New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has announced that Walmart has agreed to pay $66,000 in a false advertising settlement .
The a.g.’s office says that Wal-Mart was sold 66,000 twelve packs of Coca Cola, for $3.50 at Wal-Marts statewide here in New York State, during a June sale. The problem: the nationally advertised price during June was $3.00.
The state attorney general says Wal-Mart would not lower the price to $3.00, until the AG’s office contacted the company.
