California Guess Outlet Stores Deceptive Pricing Settlement Notes
- In Re Guess Outlet Stores Pricing
- Case No. JCCP NO. 4883
- Pending in the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, Central Civil West
Plaintiffs Versil Milton and Shiloh Borsh brought this class action lawsuit claiming Guess uses fake reference prices at its outlet factory stores.
Specifically the plaintiffs allege that Guess “misled consumers by advertising items at discounted prices by placing tags on its products sold at its California outlet locations that provide consumers with an item’s alleged “retail price” and then selling the items at a price lower than the represented “retail price.”
California law prohibits advertising goods for sale as discounted from former prices, when in fact, such representations are false and misleading. Basically, if the purported advertised retail price never existed or if the item was not sold at that price for three months preceding the discounted price, it is a violation of California’s consumer protection laws.
Guess says the claims are without merit and despite settling the case, maintains they did not engage in any unlawful conduct with regard to their outlet stores’ pricing practices. Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the Guess Outlet Stores Deceptive Pricing Settlement website.
