We love to shop. If we have the money, we buy the basic things we need. If we have extra money, we buy the gadgets we want. Still it is hard to spend money especially if you learned that the thing you purchased was defective or falsely advertised.
How do you handle that as a consumer?
Well, shopping at Robinsons Supermarket is an intelligent choice because they advocate consumer’s welfare through their Consumer Corner. Yes, they have Consumer Corner in all of its stores nationwide.
The Consumer Corner was unveiled last March 15 at the Robinsons Supermarket in Robinsons Place Manila together with the Department of Trade and Industry, in time for the celebration of World Consumer Rights Day.
