STATEWIDE - You can expect to find accurate prices at your local Walgreens store in the future. The company agreed to pay nearly $30,000 to settle claims that it scanned inaccurate prices.

The suit also said Walgreens didn't post refund notices at its Wisconsin stores.

The state Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection says it found 121 inaccurately priced products at 51 Walgreens stores on the first visit during a two-day inspection last August.

Two stores in LaCrosse and Superior failed to correct the prices even after inspectors ordered them to.

The report also said 11 stores didn't post required signs to inform customers they could get a refund if they weren't charged the lowest advertised price.

The Deerfield, Illinois based grocery and drug company didn't admit to breaking any law.
