A Woolworths shopper has suffered stitches after noticing an ‘insane’ price glitch on the shelves as he browsed the aisles.
Cassandra, mum-of-two from Sydney, saw pairs of Easter Bunny sunglasses priced at $40 and shared an image with a popular Facebook group.
“Today’s laugh, at Woolies Casula,” she captioned the social media post.
The error not only amused Cassandra, but hundreds of other band members online, some adding their amusing and incorrect price tag spots.

“I should have gone to Specsavers,” one person wrote, another added, “Must be prescription fancy glasses.”
“Damn they really raise the prices of things,” another wrote.
In the comments, another customer said she too noticed incorrect prices for Easter items and shared an image.
Among the shelves of Easter kits, arts and crafts eggs, baskets and decorations, some items cost as much as $72.
‘I [have] seen similar a few weeks ago at Woolies Strathpine. I took the photo to show the staff at checkout but forgot. Almost dead at half price,’ the buyer wrote.

A Woolworths employee later confirmed that the outrageous price tags were a mix-up.
“I can confirm that is not the price. I have done the Easter corner in my store and when we print the tickets they print as the box price (what you see is the price of the whole carton),” the staffer wrote.
“We then have to fill the stock, go back and re-order all the tickets for the individual items. Individual prices are also on the boxes.
