Fine store chains in France

The French chain of stores Intermarche faces a fine of up to $ 450,000 for a 70% discount on the chocolate paste "Nutella".This is reported by UNN with reference to Reuters.

The Office of the French Ministry of Economy on Competition (DGCCRF) accused the company of setting a price below the purchase price.

According to the law of France, stores have the right to set the price lower than the purchase price only during seasonal sales and for goods that have been in the warehouse for more than 30 days. Sale in Intermarche was held in late January, when the Christmas and New Year holidays were over. Nevertheless, representatives of the store in the interview said that the discounts were in the period of winter sales.

Because of the high discount at the end of January in the supermarkets of the network there were clashes between buyers because of the chocolate paste. A 950 gram jar of chocolate paste was sold for 1.4 euros instead of 4.5 euros. Store management had to call the police because of the fact that buyers began to fight and rush through glass jars.
