Consumer Council of Fiji is urging the public to plan well before they shop this festive season.
Chief Executive, Premila Kumar says planning is vital during this busy period and impulse buying should never be an option.
”Parents need to be mindful of their pockets, they should try and do what they can do within the budget they have, if one takes loan and goes out of pocket, its means that the month of Jan will be even tougher.”
Kumar adds being in the most expensive month of the year, consumers should be vigilant with expiry dates, conditions of goods and its prices.
The council is currently in a joint surveillance exercise with the Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission to ensure consumers buy the best this month.
