Default Limiting sale items in NM

Some ads for sale items limit the number that can be purchased at that sale price. Walgreen's flyer seems to always have limits on their sale items. Can they do that?

According to your reference, it may be unlawful. I don't know that it should be, though. Why should a business not be able to limit the number of sales items?

Of course there's a way around that law as well. Store managers can designate how many will be put on shelves at the sale price, when it's gone, it's gone. I think the limitations allows more people to take advantage of the sale price, that is, unless people make numerous trips to the store.

I agree and see nothing wrong with that...

I sent an E-Mail to Walgreen Corporate headquarters. I'll let you know if I get a response.

This issue of limiting sale items came up years ago when several lawyers noticed an ad at K-Mart that would have permitted a restocking of the break room with sodas, etc. at a good price. When the check-out clerk advised only X amount could be bought this law was explained to the manager and thr amounts wanted were purchased at the advertised sale price.

Walgreens, like Wal-Mart, changes store managers by transfers, etc. so they may not stay in Roswell very long. In the past the North Walgreens store manager did ask for legal guidance from his corporate office and was told to comply with the law. He in turn told the S. Main manager to do the same.
Their sale flyers are printed out-of-state and used in several states.

Whether the law is right or wrong it is the law in N.M. until it's amended or eliminated. You can print a copy of that statute and show it to any store manager who may refuses to sell more than the advertised sale item limits.
You are not limited by the number of items on the shelf. You can ask for items not on display but in stock in the rear of the store. The law does not apply to people who intend to resell these sale items.

Some people simply go back and buy more at the limit # several times or have family and friends make the purchases. This is a generally unknown law.
