St James Pharmacy. Powis Street. Woolwich.Feb 6th.

Deep Heat priced at £4.48 is priced at £6.25 next to a similar looking box which is £6.25.
Problem: Both boxes are at the front of the facing selection in two different rows.Both read £6.25
Problem: Only when l search through the two rows do l discover there are two different prices.
Both ar NOT £6.25 at all.
Problem: I know, it was a mistake when l question the over pricing but would £6.25 have been gladly taken had l not? Why is the box snatched away from me when l do?
This is a Pharmacy which displays an NHS sign outside too.Not good publicity for a system already under the cosh.Please remember times are finacially tight and the public can be taken for a ride.Please do not exploit them. Please price your products properly.

I guess there can be genuine mistakes in labelling products' prices, what I think is much worse is the terrible practice of supermarkets systematically manipulating us and their prices to get their sales in. "£1.99 each or two for £3.98", "50% off" (when they only ever sold it at full price in one store in Wigan for 2 weeks) and the like... I'm sure they're getting away with murder and if trading standards ever stood up to them and investigated properly would be slapping fines down left right and centre.

Agreed. This sounds like an easy mistake to make, I wouldn't point the finger just from one example like this.
