HoneyBaked Ham Clever Marketing... – I have always been a fan of HoneyBaked Ham. I enjoy the product. Today, however, I visited the Rancho Mirage store to obtain a quarter ham that had an ad in the paper advertising $23.99 for a quarter ham. I went there yesterday, but they were sold out. So going back today, I asked for the quarter ham at the advertised price of 23.99. The attendant asked how many would I like to feed. I said 3 to 4 people and that I have had the quarter ham before. She replied that it would be 29 dollars and change. I asked do you honor the 23.99 ad in the paper....she said, "oh that, that's not a coupon and if you get that quarter ham it's all bone. I said yes, but isn't a quarter ham a quarter ham ? She looked in the cooler and said she doesn't have any 23.99 hams and that they were all 29 dollars.
So it appears, a quarter ham comes in two types...one that is acceptable and one that is not. It's not the money that bothers me, it is the " bait and switch" tactics used by this store. To my way of thinking, a quarter ham is a quarter ham. Should be the same.
It is a shame that this type of trickery is used in a store that had a good reputation. I like the product, just not the tactics of this store.
