HARRISBURG – The PA Attorney General’s Office has shut down price gouging at Regional Discount Pharmacy at 910 S. Duke Street in Lancaster. The office received tips alleging that the pharmacy was selling N95 face masks for unlawful prices. They learned the business sold 353 face masks at $8 each. Under the Price Gouging Act, a price increase of more than 20% during a declared state of emergency is considered price gouging. The pharmacy will pay civil penalties, restitution to those who purchased the masks, and agreed to fully comply with all provisions of the PA Consumer Protection Law and Price Gouging Act. Consumers who purchased N95 face masks from Regional Discount Pharmacy may be eligible for restitution and can attach a copy of their receipt showing they purchased the N95 face masks between March 6, 2020 and June 22, 2020. Complaints must be submitted by August 24 to be considered. We have a link to file a price gouging complaint by clicking on the PA Attorney General Josh Shapiro’s picture below.
