Which? response to OFT warning on “misleading prices”

In response to OFT’s warning to six high street carpet and furniture retailers under investigation for using artificially high prices to exaggerate sales and price cuts, Which? executive director, Richard Lloyd, said:
“OFT’s warning sends a clear message to carpet and furniture stores that special offers really have to be special. It’s unacceptable that shoppers are misled into thinking they’re getting a good deal when that might not be the case.”
