Battle against fake products
Re the article in the PeterboroughTelegraphaboutatrader selling counterfeit shoesatmy Big Boot car boot sale in Wellington Street, Peterborough.
Firstly: it has been proved in a British court of law that a market is a concourse of five stalls and more, regardless of whether selling second hand goods or newgoods, therefore thereisnodifferencebetween a car boot and a market.
Secondly: my website, www. bizzybootsltd.co.uk and banner states prohibited goods that are not allowed to be sold on the car boot and counterfeit goods are on the list.
It also states onmywebsite that in addition to buyers visiting the car boot, so do Trading Standards and Police, we work with both if we have a problem.
I was totally unaware of counterfeit goods being sold andindeedunlesstheywereof extremelypoorquality(which TradingStandardsstatedthey were very good quality) I and thousandsmorelikemewould not know the difference.
Thirdly: I am a respected local businessman, pay my way and have no debts, I have been running many successful businesses for the last 30 years, coffee shop in Stamford, Wirrina car park, car boot sales for nearly 30 years (in February) and I take offence to one of the comments beingmade: that I amasbadas the market trader.
Perhaps just as quickly as some of your readers have “hung, drawn and quartered” me through their ignorance, they could be just as quick to apologise to me Tony Dalessio Peterborough
