Michael Kors Holdings Ltd Settles US Lawsuit Alleging Deceptive Price Tags

Michael Kors Holdings Ltd. agreed to pay USD 4.88 million and change its sales practices to settle a class action lawsuit claiming it used deceptive price tags at its outlet stores to fool shoppers into believing they were getting big bargains. The preliminary settlement was filed in Manhattan federal court and requires court approval. The company was accused of creating an "illusion" of deep discounts by using tags containing made-up "manufacturer's suggested retail prices," or MSRP, and offers to sell the products at lower prices. As part of the settlement, Michael Kors will replace "MSRP" with "Value" on its price tags and display signage explaining that term, or stop using reference prices for products made exclusively for its outlets. In a court filing, the plaintiffs' lawyers said the lawsuit is among several accusing well-known retailers of deceptive marketing in outlet and factory stores that violates state consumer protection laws. Michael Kors denied wrongdoing in agreeing to settle.
