325D.03 DISCRIMINATION UNLAWFUL.
Any person, partnership, firm, or corporation, foreign or domestic, doing business in the state
and engaged in the production, manufacture, or distribution of any printed or mimeograph matter,
commodity, article, goods, wares, or merchandise in general use or consumption, who for the
purpose or with the effect of injuring a competitor or destroying competition, shall discriminate
between different sections, communities, or cities of this state by selling or furnishing such
commodity, article, goods, wares or merchandise at a lower price, or rate in one section,
community, or city, or any portion thereof, than such person, firm, or corporation, foreign or
domestic, charges for such commodity, article, goods, wares, or merchandise in another section,
community, or city, or any portion thereof, after making allowance for difference, if any, in the
grade, quality, or quantity after equalizing the distance from the point of production, manufacture,
or distribution and freight rates therefrom, shall be guilty of unfair discrimination; provided, that
sections 325D.01 to 325D.07 shall not prevent any person, firm, or corporation from, in good
faith, meeting local competition within any one section, community, or city. The inhibition hereof
against locality discrimination shall embrace any scheme of special rebates, collateral contracts,
or any device of any nature whereby such discrimination is, in substance or fact, effected in
violation of the spirit and intent of sections 325D.01 to 325D.07.
