FG reopens Sahad Store that had been shut earlier in Abuja for inaccurate pricing

FG decides to allow the reopening of the Sahad Store Abuja that had been closed due to concerns over alleged inaccurate pricing information

In a statement released by the commission’s acting Executive Vice Chairman of the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission Adamu Abdullahi on Saturday, Abdullahi highlighted that the stores have been reopened and are now operational.

The statement read, “On February 16, 2024, FCCPC operatives visited Sahad Stores and confirmed through random checks that the deceptive practice did not only continue, but cashiers also charged prices at their discretion, leaving unsuspecting customers vulnerable to unfair pricing.

“Exercising its authority under Section 18(f), the Commission temporarily sealed the premises.

“However, following a mutual understanding and commitment from Sahad Stores to implement transparent pricing practices, the FCCPC reopened the store on February 16, 2024, at about 7 p.m.”
