The Commercial Compliance and Consumer Protection (CCCP) sector in the Department of Economic Development (DED) has called on retailers in Dubai not to increase prices of school stationery in view of the back to school season.
CCCP cautions retailers that violation of stationery price regulations noticed during inspection visits or following consumer complaints will attract fines. The officials also call upon consumers to ensure that they are not made to pay a higher price for school stationery and to report if they notice any such attempt by retailers.
It’s also reminding traders to display the price list of items prominently within the stores and on their promotional brochures.
Violators are being warned of hefty fines, while customers are being advised to file complaints with the DED.
