Everyone has the right to a safe workplace and services at stores

Today, 21 March, is the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, which also marks the beginning of the national Week against Racism. The Finnish Commerce Federation hopes that consumers will take into account their own role in promoting the well-being at work of those who work in customer service and in creating a safe environment for those who visit stores.

Price announcement of discounts and offers to change at the end of May 

The new provisions on discounts will enter into force on 28 May and, from that date, consumers will have to be informed, in addition to the discount or offer price of the goods, of the lowest price at which the goods have been sold to consumers in the 30 days preceding the campaign. This requirement does not apply to perishable foods or discounts targeted at a limited number of consumers, such as loyalty programme offers.
