That’s the price they wrote, so you shouldn’t have to pay the difference.  For all you knew, they were on sale!

I think you should contact the manager of the shop and explain the situation. As a good customer service move, they should try to make amends somehow–either give you a special discount, throw in some freebies, or something else.

What kind of place is this? That is so unprofessional to call and ask to charge more! If they made the mistake it’s on them. Definately. I can’t even believe that. Make sure you get something or tell them you will be posting some rant reviews online!!

They need to honor the price you all agreed to. Your paperwork is your contract. Too late for them to go back on it now…I think they might just be hoping to intimidate you all into agreeing…make sure no one caves! good luck!

Its their fault they wrote the wrong price down not once but multiple times (I’m assuming they wrote it down a several times, once for each ‘maid)!

if its in writing they cannot force you to pay the original price. Its their fault, too bad!

It sounds like I’m the only one who disagrees… but even though I agree that they can’t force you to pay more, that it looks pretty bad on the store, and is awkward for everyone involved, I don’t think it’s outrageous that they asked for the difference.  If they told you when you were deciding on the dress that it was the lower price, and it’s what you made your decision on, then yes, there’s no reason you should have to pay the extra.  But that’s not really what happened.

I’m kind of with bug-in-a-rug on this one. I’m actually pretty surprised none of you clarified the prices of the dress when they were written down for such a drastically different price!

I do think it’s a little bit unprofessional, but if a salesperson made the mistake, I would guess all of the difference is going to come out of her commission, and that’s not really cool, IMO.

You were all okay with the price initially being $280 less 15%; hopefully you can all still be happy with it!
