HALIFAX - Nova Scotia's Crown liquor company says it overcharged customers nearly $30,000 last weekend after a computer glitch resulted in a premature hike in prices.

The Nova Scotia Liquor Corp. says it collected $29,891.70 from people that it shouldn't have because it implemented a price increase on Saturday, two days ahead of schedule.

The company says it will donate that amount to a registered charity that customers can vote on at its website until Thursday.

People who were overcharged can also be reimbursed if they bring their receipts.
