The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) had started monitoring prices of Noche Buena products for the coming Christmas.
According to DTI Aklan Provincial Director Diosdado P. Cadena, Jr, posters of Suggested Retail Price (SRP) are being given to big and small businesses in order for these establishments to follow the correct prices implemented by the DTI on Noche Buena products.
Christmas lights and other decorations to be used for Christmas are also being closely monitored.
Cadena also made a reminder it should be made sure that Christmas lights have Import Commodity Clearance (ICC) to avoid fire and faulty electric wiring.
He added that the buying of goods, gifts and preparations for Christmas should be done early to avoid the crowd at markets.
A reminder was also made to the public to be intelligent in buying for the upcoming celebration and if there are problems on the products bought, their office should be contacted.
