TO PROVIDE a more convenient service to stakeholders, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) launched recently a Consumer Center kiosk at MarQuee Mall in Angeles City.
DTI-Pampanga Director Elenita Ordonio said the opening of the facility aims to further strengthen and promote consumer welfare in Pampanga and in Central Luzon.
"We targeted malls as they are usually frequented by large volumes of people particularly during weekends and holidays," Ordonio said.
She said with the opening of the said Consumer Corner, consumers are given access and will be more knowledgeable of consumer-related information, education and communication (IEC) materials.
Available IEC materials include Consumer Rights and Responsibilities, Labeling Requirements, Philippine Standards and Import Commodity Clearance marks, Credit Card Surge, Online Securitips, and E-Presyo.
Moreover, Bagwis Program, Consumer Complaints, Suggested Retail Price, Price Tag, and Warranty.
Meanwhile, Ordonio said the DTI is also set to open similar kiosks in other malls in Pampanga soon.
