Supermarket hero or villain?

FRAMINGHAM

Framingham's Alana Lipkin, who gets loads of free stuff from supermarkets by finding incorrectly priced items, has inspired a lot of comment from readers of the Business section.

Some praised her in that section's Letters column. Several Globe West residents were a little more negative.

Sid Sklar of Wayland said her behavior was that of a "misguided and wrong-headed individual."

Ronald Levy of Newton said her behavior was "unethical."

Brian Parrillo of Sudbury said what Lipkin does is wrong. The goal instead should be low average prices, he argued.
