Bazars and pawnshops don’t provide proper information

(Continuous report of 2nd quarter of 2015)

(Prague, August 14, 2015) The Czech Trade Inspection Authority detected flaws in more than a half of 189 inspected workplaces within an inspection action focused on services provided by bazars and pawnshops. Their operators don’t properly fill in bills of purchases of products and don’t properly inform consumers about the extent, conditions and manner of exercising rights from defective performance or about how to make a claim. In some cases sellers illegally reduced the period for making a claim concerning bazar products or even didn’t provide any period at all. With regard to the ratio of detected defects, inspection action will continue in the following quarter as well.

The complete press release is available in the attachment.
