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.
