Most things that we refer to as a "rip-off" have a reason.

Maybe I should have elaborated when I said "ripoff".
It had nothing to do with any of the things you mentioned.
It had to do with changing the "sell by" labels on the meats, dairy and other things that had a tendency to spoil. I used to have to smell all the perishable food before I would dare to eat it.
As a matter of fact the local stores were cited for those things in the NY Post.
Bad management fosters bad attitudes in the staff and the manager of the local supermarket was a mean nasty man who treated his staff very poorly.
