BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA:

Section 1.

Minnesota Statutes 2016, section 325F.53, subdivision 1, is amended to read:

Subdivision 1.

Requirements.

In any store primarily engaged in the sale of grocery products at retail using an electronic or magnetic scanner to read the price of grocery products presented for check-out, every canned, bottled, boxed or bagged item of merchandise sold or offered for sale at retail shall have the selling price in arabic numerals clearly affixed to each item by a stamp, tag, label or other conspicuous marking device when electronically or magnetically scanned for check-out unless the price of the item is conspicuously displayed where the item is shelved and the store provides a means by which the customer may mark individual items. If a grocery product is canned, bottled, boxed or bagged, but sold in quantities of more than one in the containers in which the product came from the manufacturer or distributor, the price may be marked on the outer containers rather than on each individual item.
