    Default Advertised Sale With No Stock

    This is a common occurance by a retailer in my area. Can anyone tell me what Federal or State (PA) law or laws, if any, may cover this?

    1. The store advertises an item on sale without having any available stock of the item (for the entire duration of the sale).

    2. Their system shows 1 of the item in stock, but no one knows where it is (so they can lure customers in by saying it is in stock or they have one left).

    3. Once in the store, then trying to up-sell you to higher priced merchandise.

    Thank you.

    What you're looking for is the Unfair Trade Practices And Consumer Protection Law.

    There's also a nifty explanation here.
