Sam owns and operates a garden shop and landscaping business. In February 2011, he manages to procure a large quantity of old railway sleepers. These sleepers are highly coveted by many gardeners for use as decorative retaining walls, borders and garden steps. As part of marketing plan intending to increase customer loyalty, Sam sends a pamphlet to his regular customers telling them a special price for the sleepers.
Top quality railway sleepers for sale, Ideal for retaining walls, borders and garden steps. Special price of $100 for 5, while stocks last
The weather, however, stays very mild for the time of year and Sam’s landscaping business sales soar. By May sales are still high. Sam negotiates with his supplier for another load of sleepers. Due to high demand these sleepers are more expensive.
Sam must sell them $100 for 3 to make the same profit. Sam does not send out a pamphlet this time; instead he places a sign on the sleepers in his yard which tells of the new price.
Parball and Sonia, a newlywed couple have been saving up for landscaping their garden. They intend to enter a contest for the TV Home and Garden Show. They relied for their budget on Sam’s pamphlet. When they arrive at Sam’s yard and find sign for the new price of the sleepers they are upset. The price would not allow them to finish their project in time for the contest. Parball and Sonia show their pamphlet to Sam and demand the sleepers at the lower price.
Required: Advise Sam as to whether he is bound by the lower price. In your answer rely on the Contract law only. You do not need to consider Australian Consumer Law in support of your advice. (17.5 marks)
