Dubai Economy emphasised that all stores and outlets as well as their customers must strictly adhere to the precautionary measures.

Dubai Economy shut down a department store and issued a Dh50,000 fine against it on Wednesday for not adhering to Covid-19 precautionary measures.

A large crowd had gathered inside the store due to a discount sale, according to the Dubai Media Office.

"Dubai Economy recently summoned the management of a department store that failed to comply with the precautionary measures against Covid-19, most notably physical distancing, during a discount sale. The sale had seen visitors thronging the store, ignoring the risk of physical contact," the Dubai Media Office said.

Dubai Economy calls on consumers to report any negative practices through the Dubai Consumer App available on Apple, Google and Huawei stores, or by calling 600545555 or through the website Consumerrights.ae.

Dubai Economy emphasised that all stores and outlets as well as their customers must strictly adhere to the precautionary measures, specifically during discount sales and similar promotional campaigns.

Merchants and shop owners can refer to the commercial compliance manual available on the Consumerrights.ae website to know about the terms and conditions governing the launch of sales and promotions, reminded Dubai Economy.
