Carquest Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

According to SDLGBTN NEWS back in 2012 CarquestAuto Parts stores in the San Diego area agreed to pay a $242,715 judgment after being accused of charging customers more than the advertised or posted price on items when they were scanned at check-out counters. After customers complained to authorities, an investigation was jointly launched by the San Diego City Attorney’s Office and the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office. The case was filed in San Diego Superior Court. The case alleged CARQUEST stores in California charged customers more than the advertised or posted price on items in violation of unfair competition and false advertising laws. In addition, inspectors observed in eight stores that the cash registers failed to display the price of items where the consumer could see the display, which is a violation of state law. There was no admission of wrongdoing or liability by CARQUEST, which cooperated with prosecutors to reach a stipulated judgment. The case against CARQUEST was based on inspection reports from 10 California counties as well as consumer complaints about overcharging. In San Diego, the County Department of Agriculture, Weights, and Measures inspected local CARQUEST stores.

Former Employee - Repicker says"Management treats the work place like a prison. The supervisors are hired within which means no new fresh ideas and they are already corrupt.
