Can a discount store make up MSRP?

When one goes to Ross, Marshalls, or TJ Maxx, for example, the price tag always has the "original" price and the discount price. Do these stores have to follow any pricing rules (state/local), or may they put down whatever "original" price they want?
It is not entirely evident to me as some items will be marked down from $90 to $29.99 and others will be marked down from $30 to $19.99, suggesting that garden variety discounts are of wildly different percentages.
