It shall be an unlawful practice for any retail mercantile establishment which provides
a raincheck for any advertised merchandise that is not available for immediate purchase
to fail to:
a. Honor or satisfy that raincheck within 60 days of issuance, unless an extension
of such time period is agreed to by the holder of the raincheck, provided that if
after a good faith effort a retail mercantile establishment cannot procure for the
holder of the raincheck the advertised merchandise within the 60-day period, the retail
mercantile establishment may offer the holder of the raincheck a different item of
merchandise of substantially the same kind, quality and price of the original advertised
b. For all merchandise with an advertised price greater than $15 per unit, give written
or telephonic notice to the holder of the raincheck when the merchandise is available
and inform the holder of the raincheck that the advertised merchandise will be held
for a period of no less than 10 days from the date of notification or to the end of
the 60-day period for which the raincheck is valid, whichever is longer; and
c. Offer a raincheck to all customers who are unable, due to the unavailability of
the merchandise, to purchase the advertised merchandise during the period of time
that the merchandise has been advertised as available for sale.
