CINCINNATI - A class-action lawsuit might affect a company that sells and advertises its products in the Tri-State.
A pair of customers filed a class-action suit last week against Jos. A. Bank Clothiers after they said the company falsely advertised sales that prompted them to purchase clothes.
James Waldron and Matthew Villani claim that the clothing company indicated that a sale would expire in the near future, but they realized that Jos. A. Bank rarely, if ever, raises its prices above those advertised in its commercials.
Court documents obtained by Citybizlist Baltimore say the “plaintiffs and the Class would not have purchased Jos. A. Bank merchandise, or would have paid significantly less for the merchandise, if Jos. A. Bank had not represented that the merchandise had a ‘regular price’ that was well above the ‘sale’ price."
Villani and Waldron filed the case in federal court in New Jersey. The company said it plans to defense the suit “vigorously.”
Jos. A. Bank has five stores in the Cincinnati metropolitan area, according to the store’s website .
