EDISON - Two auto parts chain stores are facing legal troubles in New Jersey for allegedly cheating their customers.
The state Division of Consumer Affairs says that Pep Boys and Advance Auto Parts shops throughout the state were charging conflicting prices for products. An inspection of various store locations across the state found that certain items scanned at the register had higher prices than those that were posted on shelves.
The agency also accused Advance Auto Parts of not putting price labels on certain items, which is a violation of the Consumer Fraud Act.
