Brooklyn supermarket accused of over-pricing items

(08/18/10) RED HOOK - The Department of Consumer Affairs has issued violations to the Fine Fare store on Columbia Street for over-charging customers.

Department officials were dispersed citywide to inspect supermarkets and make sure they are complying with pricing regulations. According to officials, they found Fine Fare scanners over-priced items.

The manager and customers that News 12 Brooklyn spoke with at Fine Fare said they have never had a problem with pricing.

Officials say they found similar violations in other supermarkets across the city, including advertising one price and charging another, and charging tax for food items which are not taxable.
