TRNC Consumers Association will start price inspections in markets

The TRNC Consumers Association will on Monday start inspecting the prices of goods in the market across the country.

Any place found found to be victimizing consumers will be placed on the "Black List" and boycotted.

In a statement by the Association, it was noted that the inspections regarding “opportunism and exorbitant prices” will be started together with the consumers, upon the intense demand and reactions from the consumers.

“Our Association condemns the Ministry of Economy and Energy because the labels of basic consumer goods have been changed, some [goods] are underweight, unlabeled, poor quality, with price differences between labels and cases, and because they are sold to consumers at exorbitant prices in an opportunistic way, which contravenes commercial ethics, a statement issued by the Association said. 

The statement added that consumers were angry that some vendors were taking advantage by increasing prices of the most basic food stuff by between 50-100 percent; this is despite a recent reduction in exchange rates.  

It went on to say: 

Our Association strongly emphasises that it will implement a “boycott” in which the consumers will participate as a whole, within the scope of the “Black List”, of the workplaces and markets found to be making sales that make consumers aggrieved.

Good job
