Man says price-matching earned him a lifetime ban from all Walmarts

PHOENIX, Dec. 10 (UPI) -- A former professional wrestler in Arizona says if he had known Walmart would ban him for life he would not have engaged in price-matching.

Price-matching is going through other stores' advertising to find the deepest discounts and then going to Walmart, which promises to match other companies' lowest prices for identical items. Joe Cantrell says his problems began last week when he tried that at the Walmart in San Tan Valley, a Phoenix suburb, KNXV-TV, Phoenix, reported.

Cantrell, who says he loves Walmart so much, he usually makes two trips a day, said a sales associate told him price-matching was not allowed. He asked to see a manager.

The associate also apparently called the Pinal County Sheriff's Office and complained about Cantrell's behavior. Four days later, when he was back in the store, he was removed in handcuffs and given a

summons and a notice he was banned for life from every Walmart on the planet, the report said.

"I felt shamed. I felt like I was the bad guy. And I know I'm not a bad guy," Cantrell told KNXV.

Cantrell said he cried "like a baby" when the deputies decided not to charge him with anything. He also said he would just have paid a bit more if he had known the trouble price-matching would get him into.
