MERIDA (PROFECO) – The Consumer Defense Office in Merida applied a suspension measure on the Liverpool department store because it restricts entry to senior citizens while issuing a warning to Walmart supermarket in Ciudad Caucel.
The suspension means that they will have to stop the measures to prohibit access to people over 60, while with the warning they will have to do the same, and both businesses will receive a new visit from the Federal Consumer Protection Agency (Profeco) so that they can justify why they made these decisions and the basis on which they support them.
Profeco carries out verifications.
