I saw an advertisement in Manards November 29-30 sale paper for The Spencer Creek Manards in St Peters, Mo, advertising Energizer AA & AAA Batteries on sale for $6.99 for a pack of 16 I thought that was a good price so I drove the 12 miles to get some.and to look at an entry door.
When I got there the display for those batteries were empty, so I asked the person in that department if they still had any and looked up at the boxes of energizer batter on top of a tall shelving system and said Nope. I went and found what appeared to be a manager and told him the situation so he got on the computer and it showed they had 200+ of AA's and 150+ AAA's packages left in inventory, so he walked me down to the display and found another employee and told him to find me some of the 200+ battery pack they showed on the computer inventory. The manager walked away saying the employee would get me the batteries I requested.
The employee stared up at the boxes of batteries on the top of the shelf and made a statement "We an't got none". I went back and told the manager the outcome and he acted rather put-out, so I finally saw this was going no where so I told him to forget it.
I have to admit I was disappointed in Manards I had planned to look at buying other items also but I figured the whole thing appeared to be a bait and switch, so I left the store without anything.
That small almost insignificant deal in Manards let me know I would not do any further business with them of any kind
