Denise Goolsby • The Desert Sun • January 20, 2009
As part of a class action settlement, $175 million worth of free cosmetics products will be distributed to members of the class action suit beginning today, for a maximum of seven days, on a first-come, first-served basis.
The products will be distributed at stores owned by the Retailer Defendants, including Gottschalks and Macy's.
The give-away settles a price-fixing suit.
A class member will be eligible to receive, while supplies last, a maximum of one free cosmetic product from one of the manufacturers from which he or she purchased department store cosmetics during the class period, May 29, 1994 through July 16, 2003, from a list of products from companies including Chanel, Inc., Christian Dior Perfumes, Inc., The Estee Lauder Companies, Inc., and L'Oreal USA, Inc.
No rainchecks will be issued.
