We can count on NBC 4 consumer reporter Liz Crenshaw to spot the proper response.

Question: Is it legal for a business like a dry cleaner to not post the prices it charges for its services?

Answer: We turned to the Montgomery County Office of Consumer Protection for this answer. It tells us that there is no specific law that prices must be posted in a business. However, if you ask for a price and they refuse to tell you, that may be in violation of a law called “omission of a material fact”. As always, if you do feel a business is violating the law or treating you unfairly, do report it to the Office of Consumer Protection in your county or city.
