OfficeMax had listed a mediocre 19" widescreen LCD from AOC for a "Clearance" price of $53.74. A friend of mine ordered one yesterday, but has since received a notice that his order was being canceled as that price was an "obvious typographical error." For one, that price is not THAT exciting for a generic 19" monitor, and secondly, they did list it as clearance. I do not believe that a company should be able to arbitrarily cancel orders because they decide that a price THEY set is no longer the price they wish to sell them for. Essentially, they saw a number of customers rush to buy these and decided "hey, we could have made the price point higher -- let's cancel the orders and jack up the price!"
OfficeMax: congratulations. I will never again shop at your store, regardless of price or convenience. Staples and Office Depot will be the only suppliers of office supplies for me. Hopefully, someone will file a class-action suit against you for this. This is a classic bait-and-switch routine. Cheap, unethical, business practices.
