Goods from seasonal sales can become expensive

(Partial report of 1st quarter of 2014)

(Prague, May 22, 2014) Offering and selling goods within special offers and clearance sales as well as services with various price advantages are continuously monitored and inspected by the Czech Trade Inspection Authority. Results of these inspections from 1st quarter 2014 again proved that within sale of discounted products legal regulations are still being violated – especially the Act on Consumer Protection. Inspectors detected shortcomings in 401 of 1,051 inspections. In almost half of the cases sellers failed to inform about prices of goods or offered services. Also breaches of principles of fair selling within sale of goods and provision of services were detected to a great extent. For these and other breaches, 280 fines exceeding the total amount of 5.5 million CZK were imposed in the monitored period.
