Stamps

Well here at work we have a little store and they sell alot of different things at high prices . I went up there today to get 2 stamps and they told me $1.00. I said umm no they are .42 cents a stamp so it should only be .84 cents. They said that is what they charge.
Do you think this is elegal?

Surely if they are priced at .42 then they can only charge that per stamp? Seems wrong to me.

Maybe they're charging for delivery?

Actually, Walgreens sells pre-packaged stamps for more than their face value

Ii wouldn't deal with them any more, and I'd tell them why. It's not the few cents; it's the principle involved.

ya, i don't care about the few cents.
My dad works with the post office (he's the machanic). He isn't happy about them charging more, it's just not right.
