A concerned Lusaka resident has advised members of the public to be careful so that they are not duped by chains stores as they do their shopping during the festive season.
Mumbuna Kufekisa says he was shocked to be charged almost double the price of fish flakes at the till from that reflected on the shelf at Pick n’ Pay Woodlands shopping mall .
He explains that the price of the product on the shelf indicated K28.00, while when it was passed through the till, the price reflected K41.00.
Mr. Kufekisa has wondered how many people have been duped in a similar manner because they cannot speak out.
He has since called on the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission to move in and ensure that these chain stores do not continue duping people.
Mr. Kufekisa states that this is especially that a similar incident happened recently were a named chain store had its price of chicken more than doubled.
