Mid-year sale pro­tec­tion alert

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - News -

CON­SUMER Pro­tec­tion has is­sued a timely re­minder about re­fund rights and false advertising ahead of mid-year sales. “If goods don’t meet these ba­sic cri­te­ria, con­sumers are en­ti­tled to a rem­edy in the form of a re­fund, re­pair or re­place­ment,” Act­ing Com­mis­sioner for Con­sumer Pro­tec­tion David Hillyard said. “How­ever, these rules do not ap­ply if you sim­ply change your mind.” The con­sumer watchdog says signs an­nounc­ing the store has a no-re­fund pol­icy, even on sale items, are illegal.“
