PHOENIX - Recent unannounced inspections of kiosks inside Valley malls found that many kiosks do not display prices on their merchandise, violating a state law, according to the Arizona Department of Weights and Measures.
The department conducted inspections of 52 kiosks in four Valley malls between July and August 2012. Officials said that their records show that only about half of the kiosks inspected complied with the state law stating that all merchandise for sale must display a price.
The department inspected Christown Spectrum Mall, Superstition Springs Mall, Scottsdale Fashion Square and Desert Sky Mall.
Shawn Marquez, Director of Compliance at the Department of Weights and Measures said in a press release, "Imagine shopping at a grocery store where nothing was priced on the shelves or purchasing gasoline without prices on the dispensers, the consumers would be up in arms."
