Yesterday, March 15, 2016 was the official World Consumer Rights Day and Jamaica is engaged in four days of activities, since Tuesday, geared at increasing public awareness to what is Consumer Rights and what those rights entail. The objective of the four-day long timetable of Consumer Rights Day, is to provide access to information regarding basic consumer rights and encourage the practice of effective reporting of unfair practices or practices that violate these basic consumer rights.
IConsumer (a Gleaner affiliate website) has stepped in, doing their social service of making information available to the public about the day. It is a common day of observation and consumers are urged to come out in their numbers and be informed. When you know your rights, you will recognize quality versus the lack of quality, if applicable, in a product or service. Take advantage of the various forums and activities at a location near you, arm yourself with information today.
PFS endorses World Consumer Rights Day and the Jamaican Consumer Affairs Executive body for orchestrating activities that increase public knowledge and awareness.
Go forth and be informed.
