On Saturday evening we decided that pizzas would be nice, so we checked the website menu for a wood fired pizza purveyor in Civic. The menu had prices, so I had an expectation that the price would be around $42. The woman at the counter told me that the price was $47. When I pointed out the discrepancy and that the website prices were lower, she explained that the website was in the process of being updated and the advertised prices were no longer correct. When I showed little sympathy, she explained that they really couldn’t afford to sell pizzas at the advertised prices. On that basis, I decided not to press the issue and left the freshly made pizzas with her. We then decided to patronise the wood fired pizza purveyor at Red Hill shops, where the prices are as advertised (albeit, not on the web).
What sort of Mickey Mouse organisation fails to deliver a product at the advertised price and offers the feeble excuse that the menu is going to be updated? Have they realised that Canberra pizza afficionados are so compliant that they will pay at higher than advertised prices?
The home page shows that they last updated their website on 13 August 2007.
Did anyone buy three slightly stale pizzas in Civic on Saturday night (8 Sep)?
