Know your rights during sales frenzy
IPSWICH bargain hunters are being warned to pay attention to their consumer rights as retailers slash prices to tempt shoppers in mid-year clearance sales.
Fair Trading executive director Brian Bauer said it was important shoppers remembered their consumer rights did not stop when these sales started.
"All goods must be fit for purpose, safe, as described and have no defects - these are basic rights under consumer law that do not change during sales," he said.
