Roundy's pays $43,000 to settle price violations

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Roundy's Supermarkets Inc. has paid $43,000 to the state of Wisconsin to settle allegations it overcharged customers.

The Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection announced Tuesday that the supermarket chain had paid the fine, which was levied after inspections at 43 stores in October. Roundy's owns Pick 'n Save, Copps Food Center and Mega Marts grocery stores.

The department says inspectors ordered the stores to fix inaccurate prices and then returned the next day to ensure the work was done. It says inspectors found seven cases in which scanned prices hadn't been adjusted to reflect prices posted in the store.

Inspectors also found five cases where stores didn't post signs letting shoppers know they could get refunds.

Roundy's did not admit violating any state laws.
