A warning for traders who work in tourist areas in Turkey and ignore the price tags on the product, issued the Ministry of Commerce of the country. It recalled that price tags are mandatory and prices must be in Turkish Lira.
As Turizmgunlugu quotes, a message sent from the Ministry of Commerce to retailers' organizations indicated that goods sold in stores ” in places of compact residence of tourists”, i.e. in resorts, most often do not have price tags. “Twhich situation is causing dissatisfaction among tourists and a loss of confidence in terms of Turkish tourism,” the ministry said.
Traders were reminded that the Consumer Protection Law has provisions on price tags, and warned that the label must be on the goods offered for retail sale. However, the labels that must be placed on products sold in tourist areas must include “the property of the goods, the selling price including taxes, the unit price, the date the price was applied, and the phrase “domestic goods” if the product is locally produced. “. Sellers were also warned that all label prices must be in Turkish Lira.
«Labels can be handwritten or digitally printed. Where it is not possible to put a label, price lists should be placed in a conspicuous place,” the ministry added.
