CLEVELAND, Ohio — A man from Moreland Hills has sued Walmart over price discrepancies between products sold online and in physical stores.
Kevin Adelstein has filed a lawsuit against the supermarket giant in federal court in Cleveland. The lawsuit seeks class action status. This is one of similar lawsuits he has filed across the country against Walmart.
Cleveland.com and The Plain Dealer have reached out to Walmart for comment.
Adelstein’s attorneys filed in court that Walmart violated Ohio and federal consumer protection laws.
The accusation stems from higher product prices in stores compared to lower online prices for the same products.
Three examples were cited in the lawsuit. Adelstein purchased the herbicide for $1.80 and he $4.02 more than the price advertised online. He also purchased ceramic wax at a store that was $7.88 more expensive, the lawsuit said.
Adelstein’s attorney said Walmart’s own POS records should show how many people were affected.
