The Advisory Service User of the Municipal Services of the Department of Economic Development offers a number of recommendations to users on the occasion of upcoming summer so that no problems arise within hours of making these traditional shopping at this time of the year.
Many years were instilled in the consumer the idea that find items at discounted prices could only get two months of summer, in winter also two other, prevented the legal rule out otherwise.
Times change and both the legal regulation as shopping habits and consumption as well.
We are in a context where sales periods are freely set by each trader seasons also offer products are not only summer and winter, but other new collections are interspersed between them.
In this regard, it is noted that inadvertently forget the surprise or random component lining these purchases, yes that should be giving increasing weight to scheduled purchases as previously noted on a shopping list.
In addition, products advertised as on sale must have been prior to the sale, the previous price must be indicated and the current lowered, so be careful with specifically developed with the idea of â€‹â€‹camouflaging among other products in this period.
Similarly, price should not be the only factor to consider, it will have to try to discern quality, returns, guarantees, etc;
and should look for places and times where purchases can be made without precipitation.
Also the price reduction does not involve any reduction in the quality of the product;
and if there is no defect in the product and this has been acquired in a trade with direct treatment of the public, not through means -Internet- distance, returns are directly set by the seller with no other possibility of change.
From the municipal department it communicates that rebates should not be confused with other types of sales as:
sales of stocks: products whose value is decreased by deterioration, damage, etc.
clearance sales: they are those carried out by cases such as total or partial separations business;
also local change.
deals: apply on products in order to promote them through any sales claim.
They are performed at any time of year.
Regional reports that it is highly recommended to preserve evidence (advertising, writings, etc.) offers, price lists, etc., because although not reflected in contracts are binding;
and require proof of purchase and documents duly completed warranty.
The guarantees do not change discounted products.
In addition, you should note that the means of payment (credit cards, deadlines, etc.) accepted by commercial establishments, sales time, also should be accepted as valid without any surcharge on the price.
Finally, it is recommended to buy adhered to consumer arbitration system is an added security establishments to the attention paid by merchants.
