A post office glitch could have customers paying more at the register at some South Charleston stores.
If you shop at Target in Corridor G, you'll be paying half a cent more on the sales tax than any other store in the area.
According to South Charleston Mayor Frank Mullens, when the city of Charleston raised its sales tax back on Oct. 1, some stores implemented that tax incorrectly.
The mayor said that Target is a part of South Charleston, but it’s being taxed like it's a part of Charleston.
He blames the U.S. Postal service, because the addresses are all incorrect.
Mullins said he's meeting with representatives from the post office sometime next week.
