New Mass. law could lead to price guessing

Posted: Updated:

Mass. - Shoppers in Massachusetts could be facing a price guessing game as food stores are no longer required to use price stickers.

The law scheduled to go into effect on January 1 allows shop owners to place price scanners around the store, rather than using individual price stickers.

Store owners pushed for the new law, saying it would save them the expense of having to put stickers on everything in their shops. But consumer advocates opposed the law; they say scanners will lead to a "guess the price" game before heading to the checkout line.
