JANESVILLE — A letter to the state from Woodman’s President Willard Woodman complains about Meijer’s alleged unfair pricing.

The Unfair Sales Act Complaint Questionnaire was filled in by Woodman and sent to the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection in August.

At the bottom of the form, it’s written “Normally we don’t turn others into you, but this is ridiculous.”

Along with the letter were photos of cans of Folgers and Maxwell House coffee for the week of Aug. 16 to Aug. 23, which Woodman contends were priced too low at the Kenosha store according to the Wisconsin minimum markup law.

In recent months, an attorney has also filed complaints for an unnamed client.
