Price Chopper and Automated Phone Calls

Apparently, our local Price Chopper Supermarket is trying a new guerilla marketing program that includes automated phone calls and ignoring the New York State Do Not Call list. I suspect they get around the law because I do have a Price Chopper advantage card. They consider me an existing customer so I must want phone calls.

I received the following automated phone call today on both our phones.

"Hi , this Cindy from Price Choppers Supermarket calling to tell you how you can shop your food bill and plan the perfect picnic this labor day weekend. Simply look in this Thursday Newspaper to find our ad with a special clip and Shop coupon that will save you $5 of your next purchase of $ 50 or more and since we your week that will be filled with family, friends, food and fun. You'll also find your favorite barbecue items that are sure to make of the summer festivities one to remember. Offers are good thru Saturdays, September 30 at then our Greater capital District Stores. Coupons are available in (foreck?) newspapers . For a complete list of participating newspapers or for more in formation, please call 800-869-xxxx. Thanks."

If automated phone calls bother you as much as they do me I encourage you to call Price Chopper and ask them to stop this kind of intrusive marketing.

Toll-free M-F, 9 am 5 pm: 800-666-7667
