This year if you do decide to do your shopping in stores, our Consumer Protection Unit has put together some tips to keep you feeling festive:
The holiday season is here and Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin is offering holiday shoppers important tips to help keep their wallets as full as their stockings.
“First and foremost, consider shopping local. Just as great deals can be found in big box stores and online retailers, our small businesses too offer great prices and unique gifts. And shopping local helps drive our local economy. During this season of giving, shoppers are searching for the best deals on the perfect gifts for their loved ones and it’s important that consumers are not taken advantage of. With the hustle and bustle of the season, honest pricing mistakes can be made by retailers, so it is important consumers have the information they need to ensure a merry and bright holiday season for family finances,” said Attorney General Kilmartin.
