I have never had this happen. At other stores, they are always more than willing to enter the numbers/price by hand if an item doesn't scan. I sent an email to the company when I came home and am waiting to hear back which they said could take up to 48 hours.
I am not by nature a confrontational person, except in situations like this. I would have politely asked to speak to the manager, and then stated my case in a calm manner. It is really not right for them to have merchandise on display that they refuse to sell.

I never take a cashier or clerk's word on something like this. Half the time, they have not been told what the policy really is, or many times if it means a little trouble for them to process it, they just say no.
