Government inspectors in Qatar have charged at least 11 stationery and sports garment stores for selling counterfeit items, not displaying product prices and overcharging, according to local press.
According to menafn.com, the Ministry of Economy and Commerce said some of the erring outlets have been fined and it urged parents and students not to buy costlier stationery items and to buy back-to-school supplies in quantities that they actually need to avoid wasteful expenditure.
The Ministry boasts Consumer Protection Department (CPD) launched raids on at least 750 back-to-school supply shops and sports garment outlets.
