According to the Consumer ombudsman has the grocery Store is also running deals on a bike over a longer time.
'Well, had continuously promoted the toy with the discount in the price, and marketed the bike had not cost the stated normal price for the last four months up to the offer. So, there can in my opinion not be a regular price. It was misleading, and I have therefore reviewed the Salling Group to the police,' says Christina Toftegaard Nielsen, the consumer ombudsman, in the message.
In the Salling Group are apparently happy to have got one over the nose. In each case, there is issued a press release with the headline 'grocery Store welcomes clearer marketing rules'. It is:
'We have only a desire to market our offer for the book. So far, there have not been clear rules for the frequency of short-term price promotions on toys, which has arrived now, and we decorated already our marketing for it in the summer of 2018, when we started the dialogue with the Consumer,' says Mark Nielsen, director in the grocery Store, in the press release.
