The field visits are conducted by CCCP inspectors as part of protecting consumers from deceptive marketing as well as inaccurate sale prices and eliminating practices that negatively impact Dubai's position as a preferred shopping destination.
Commented Mohammed Ali Rashid Lootah, CEO of CCCP: "We compare prices before and during promotional sales to ensure that consumers are not cheated and transparency is maintained across retailing in Dubai. It's part of the market monitoring we do to foster trust between consumers and merchants and enhance retail sector competitiveness and business in Dubai."
Lootah called on consumers use the 'Smart Protection' service available on the 'Dubai Consumer' app to report violations or submit their complaints. Consumers can also call the Ahlan Dubai number 600 54 5555 to raise complaints.
