One-stop-shop for con­sumers

North Harbour News - - NEWS -

Dur­ing the Christ­mas sea­son when gifts are given and re­ceived we may be­come own­ers of goods that, through no fault of the giver, are faulty or un­safe.

If you find your­self in this po­si­tion, you can con­tact your lo­cal Cit­i­zen’s Ad­vice Bureau for free ad­vice.

CAB is a front line for all con- sumer in­quiries and can help in many in­stances, such as goods that do not meet the guar­an­tee, are of un­ac­cept­able qual­ity, are un­safe, or even if they do not meet the de­scrip­tion on the pack­ag­ing.

The CAB can pro­vide help and prac­ti­cal ad­vice with just about any is­sue that may arise over the hol­i­day sea­son. These in­clude re­la­tion­ship is­sues, bud­get­ing ad­vice, food parcels, drug and al­co­hol depen­dency and a JP ser­vice.

De­tails on your near­est Cit­i­zen’s Ad­vice Bureau can be found on the web­site www. cab. org. nz, or phone 0800-367-222.
