Restau­rant told to re­turn cork­age fee

China Daily (Canada) - - CHINA -

A court ruled on Wed­nes­day that a hot pot restau­rant in Chengdu has to re­turn the 80 yuan ($12.80) it charged a cus­tomer for cork­age and com­part­ment fees, news por­tal re­ported on Thurs­day. On Feb 16, the restau­rant charged the fe­male cus­tomer, sur­named He, the fees be­cause she brought her own wine to the restau­rant. The court based its ver­dict, the first of its kind, on the newly re­vised Con­sumer Pro­tec­tion Law, which took ef­fect on March 15.
