Saudi scouts help monitor prices near Grand Mosque in Makkah

MAKKAH: Saudi scouts help monitor prices near Grand Mosque in Makkah
Members of the Saudi Arabian Scouts Association, serving Umrah pilgrims at the Grand Mosque, have been in joint efforts with staff at the Ministry of Trade and Investment to monitor commodity prices in Makkah.
The scouts are ensuring that sellers are adhering to price tags on items and are keeping an eye on attempts of commercial fraud.
Scout head Abdel Aziz AbdulRahman Al-Ghanam said the cooperation has intensified its effort during the last ten days of Ramadan, by dedicating several scout units to aid the ministry in detecting any violations.
The scouting units are spread across the central areas surrounding the Grand Mosque joined by ministry officials.
The units also help detect damaged goods, and anything unfit for human consumption.
The scouts received training on the hands of ministry officials on the mechanism of quality control.
They succeeded in the past days of detecting items that are replicas of high-end brands being sold to consumers, as well as items that aren’t abiding by the ministry’s policies.
