Consumers find wrong prices first after payment

(Prague, September 7, 2018) Seasonal clearance sales and special offers in supermarkets are a great attraction for many Czech consumers. The Czech Trade Inspection Authority continuously monitors compliance with the Consumer Protection Act, which regulates, among other things, the fairness of sale of products. In the second quarter of 2018, 1,308 inspections were carried out and violations of legal regulations were detected in more than 50 percent of cases. “Individual CTIA inspectorates often use submissions from consumers who experience incorrect billing of product prices of discounted goods. Usually such goods are priced higher than the indicated prices. Sometimes consumers aren’t aware of the price after the indicated discount,” says the Director General of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority Mojmír Bezecný.
