Isla Mujeres mayor joins inspectors monitoring for price hikes

Isla Mujeres, Q.R. — Isla Mujeres municipal head Juan Carrillo Soberanis, says he, along with federal authorities, will continue to monitor stores to ensure prices for common items are maintained and not hiked.

Carrillo Soberanis toured the Continental Mainland with agents from the Federal Consumer Prosecutor (Profeco) to verify that prices are respected. He said that no establishments, on the island or in the Continental Zone, will be allowed to violate the laws and take advantage of the contingency situation.

“We are visiting businesses and calling on them to comply with all obligations of the law. We are reviewing items to ensure that the prices of basic products such as eggs, beans, rice, etc. are within the tabulator.”

Vladimir Vallejo Molina, head of Profeco Isla Mujeres explained that stores should visibly display the total amount of goods or services and under no circumstance should the sale of the goods or services to any person be denied.

“We want to cope with this situation in the best way, without abuse or excess and ensure that everything goes according to what is established. Therefore, stores will be monitored so that unfair practices or methods are not committed, nor are abusive conditions imposed on the supply of the product or service,” Vallejo Molina said.

He stressed that in coming days, convenience stores will be supervised in the Continental Zone and on the island with the objective of caring for and protecting the interests of citizens.

“We want to guarantee that there is no rise in prices, so if any business or store carries it out, you can inform us at 8004688722 or directly on the official website to attend to the complaint in a timely manner,” he added.
