Kevin Adelstein filed the lawsuit in the US District Court for the Northern District of Ohio over a discrepancy in Walmart’s pricing.

Adelstein has claimed that products are priced differently in stores and online.

In particular, he looked online at prices for products advertised as being available at a Walmart store in Aurora, Ohio.

But then when he got to the store he claimed the prices were higher than online.

The lawsuit includes examples of three specific products and the pricing discrepancy, Yahoo reports.

Online, Adelstein claims a weed killer was listed for $19.97.

However, at the store he claims he was charged $21.77.

Another weed killer and ceramic wax that Adelstein bought from the store cost him $4.02 and $7.88, respectively, more than the prices listed online.

According to, his attorneys allege that Walmart violated Ohio and federal consumer protection laws.

Lawyers believe thousands of customers are likely to be affected.

Walmart is known to make price adjustments in certain situations.

But their policies can be strict.

“Walmart reserves the right to change the terms of this policy at any time,” the retailer’s website states.

“The manager on duty has the final decision on any prize match.”

However, Adelstein claims that customers don’t realize they are being charged more money when shopping in stores than when shopping online.
