OfficeMax Under Fire
For those that might not have heard about this yet, apparently OfficeMax had a Verbatim 4GB USB Flash Drive advertised on their website for $17.98. Obviously that is a great price and people were lining up to place their orders, with some reports of people buying them in the store for that price.
For most of those that ordered online, they were later greeted with an email response from OfficeMax indicating the following:
I’ve talked to a few people that had placed orders which were subsequently canceled, some after they had already received an email confirmation that their order had been shipped.
It will be interesting to see how this action by OfficeMax impacts their business, as it sounds like there are quite a few people upset with this and looking into any possible legal action (which I don’t believe there will be). It will be interesting to see how this story unfolds.
