$28 difference?

Stop And Stop is selling Red Grapes at $2/lb conventional, $3/lb organic, according to peapod.

Even if bananas were 50 cents a pound, that'd be well over 10 pounds of grapes.

Why does that not seem right?

Good parallel

This guy got arrested for switching something expensive for something cheap, thus paying less than he should have. There were about 20 businesses and business owners identified in today's Globe for running the same scam from the other end, secretly switching products in order to charge people more. Will they be arrested for fraud and larceny as well?
