Sharjah store offers up to 70% Ramadan sale on 10,000 products
Sharjah - The offer started this week and will continue during Ramadan.
The Sharjah Cooperative Society (SCS) has allocated Dh25 million to support 10,000 consumer commodities, including offering discounts of 50-70 per cent on various food items, in the holy month of Ramadan.
This is being done to reduce the burden on consumers, said Majid Salem Al Junaid, CEO of SCS. He added said the SCS proves its commitment to its primary goal of providing consumer products at affordable prices. It launched this initiative as part of its Ramadan Charity campaign to support basic Ramadan commodities, Al Junaid pointed out.
Ziad Al Hammami, executive director of the retail sector, said that the drive is a result of a joint cooperation between the SCS and the Ministry of Economy. The support and the offer will be valid before and during the month of Ramadan, and SCS will provide all the necessary items to the consumers, he underlined.
Hassan Al-Souki, director of Supply and Promotion of Goods, said that the SCS has made preparations for the holy month and is ready to provide sufficient stock of basic foodstuffs to be offered in the Ramadan packages.
The offer will be available at all branches of the SCS in various parts of the emirate so that discounted prices are availed by the maximum number of consumers during Ramadan.
Dr Hashim Al Nuaimi, director of Consumer Protection Department at the Ministry of Economy (MoE), praised the role of SCS in serving the people of Sharjah, especially during the holy month. He also lauded the continuous cooperation between the SCS and the governmental and supervisory bodies.
Speaking to Khaleej Times, Al Nuaimi said that the MoE will continue its inspection in coordination with departments concerned across all the emirates before and during Ramadan. The inspections will target vegetable and fruit markets, hypermarkets as well as meat and poultry markets to ensure the traders adhere to the regulations of MoE during the holy month.
The offenders will be slapped with fines that could reach up to Dh10,000 depending on the seriousness of the violation, he added, while warning traders to avoid tampering with the prices of food items, especially the ones that are mostly consumed during the holy month.
