Rip Me Off, Why Don't You?
Oh, you say 'it's only 2 dirhams, surely you can afford that?' Well, yes I can, and no it isn't. That two dirhams represents a rise of about 17%. I questioned the duty manager about this and he said the supplier has increased the price. Yeah right, retroactively on old stock? This kind of thing is seriously illegal in the West: old stock must be sold at old prices.
I didn't buy the item (no doubt I will buy it at a Spinney's for about 10.95 or a Union Co-op for 6.50, or maybe I'll just make my own sodding pastry), but it really is well past time that we got some proper consumer protection in this country.
Oh, see this as well.
