U.S. Supreme Court

Safeway Stores, Inc. v. Oklahoma Grocers, 360 U.S. 334 (1959)

Safeway Stores, Inc. v. Oklahoma Retail Grocers Association, Inc.

No. 252

Argued May 19, 1959

Decided June 22, 1959

360 U.S. 334

Syllabus

Under the Oklahoma Unfair Sales Act, a State Court enjoined appellant from selling at retail any items of merchandise at prices less than statutory cost, even though some of appellant's competitors were selling below cost at prices appellant either knew or had reason to know were illegal. The Oklahoma Court also refused to enjoin certain of appellant's competitors from giving away trading stamps with goods sold at or near statutory cost, and enjoined appellant from reducing its prices below cost to meet that competition.

Held: The Oklahoma Unfair Sales Act, as construed and applied in this case, does not transgress the Equal Protection or Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. Pp. 360 U. S. 334-342.

322 P.2d 178 affirmed.
