The Fiji Commerce Commission was out yesterday to ensure traders comply with the price control measures.
A team from the Commission inspected the MHCC outlet in Suva as well as
Shops along the Suva Nausori corridor.
All outlets in in MHCC were given the okay – items weren’t overpriced and those under Commerce Commission control were compliant.
Fiji Commerce Commission Chief Executive Officer, Joel Abraham, says customers should be vigilant while doing their last minute shopping.
“Consumers have to make an informed choice and that informed choice only comes when you look at all these issues before you buy a particular product because money needs to be well spent.”
Meanwhile, a complaint has come up against a prominent retail outlet in Makoi, outside Nausori.
Aldex Trading Managing Director, Rajeshwar Singh, claims items it bought from a supermarket were expired.
“We bought close to 70 packs of juice, yesterday when my staff were packing this, they came across this particular juice, its close to 3/4 of the bottle, that surprised me, they called me, when I saw this, with that we can see the content at the bottom of the bottle, and saw the date, it was already expired.”
The Commerce Commission is working around the clock to ensure that consumer rights are protected.
