Their secure fastening to a stable surface tends to protect them from damage and tampering, as they cannot be tipped or moved.

Compliance with Price Disclosure Laws
Consumer Price Disclosure Laws vary from state-to-state. In several states, making consumer price scaners available to your customers can either eliminate the need for individual price labels or stickers on products, or can supplement them, giving your customers more accurate pricing information and may even help protect you from having to honor incorrect or outdated prices on miss-labelled items. The law in effect in Massachusetts, for example, allows for price scanners to comply, but has specific requirements.
A LOOK AT THE MASSACHUSETTS LAW
The Massachusetts Consumer Price Disclosure Law, which has been in place since January 2013, applies to grocery stores and retailers with grocery departments. It requires retailers to provide consumers with “clear and conspicuous price disclosure.” This can be done with either individual item price labels – a costly, time-consuming option that is tedious to keep current – or with a consumer price scanner system.
According to the law, a consumer price scanner is defined as an electronic scanner provided for consumer use that is capable of reading an item’s UPC barcode or SKU and displaying a description of the item and its correct price. OPI Custom Price Checkers certainly fit the bill!
RETAIL PRICING LAWS IN OTHER STATES
In New York State, retailers who do not mark each unit with a price tag, must make available a price check scanner to enable consumers to confirm the price of a stock-keeping unit in order to comply with Price Disclosure Laws. Several counties – including Albany, Dutchess, Nassau, St. Lawrence and Putnam Counties – have similar scanner requirements to Massachusetts. The number of scanners, and the number of scanners required with printing capabilities, is determined by the square footage of the store. In all counties, the scanners must be in a location convenient to customers and include signage.
In Michigan there is no law about how many electronic price readers are required. However, it is one of the options that retailers have to clearly communicate price in the store and where the item is located.
In California, price look-up systems are regulated under the California Business and Professions Code. The price charged for an item using a scanner or other price look-up system must agree with the lowest price that is quoted, advertised, or displayed for that item.
Additional States with Pricing Disclosure or Labeling Laws: Arizona, Connecticut, Illinois, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Dakota and Rhode Island

LET OPI TAKE CARE OF THE REQUIREMENTS
Several retail pricing laws, including the Massachusetts Consumer Price Disclosure Law, have specific requirements for the number of price scanners in the store, the number of scanners that need to be print-capable and the location of those scanners. OPI takes care of all the work – designing a solution that meets all requirements – while you reap the benefits of not-only foolproof compliance, but increased sales and customer satisfaction!
MEET SIGNAGE REQUIREMENTS IN STYLE
Some of these laws require that, in order to make the price scanner units easy for consumers to locate, they must have noticeable, easy-to-read signage. Each Scanner must have one sign at eye level and one above that can be seen from a distance. OPI fulfills these requirements for you as well while reinforcing your brand! We also work any required Consumer Notices or other information that you’re required to post into the graphics or signage of each unit.
We build our Price Checker Units to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines and the Architectural Access Board regulations.
