Big Box Stores Can’t Inspect Your Purchase
Mexico’s Consumer Protection Agency, known as PROFECO for its looong name in Spanish, has ruled that supermarkets and big box stores cannot inspect your purchase cart as you leave their premises. “It goes against freedom, safety and integrity of the buyers,” said the communique. It might take a while before the stores stop doing it, but you have been alerted. So have been Costco, Walmart, Home Depot, Office Depot and Office Max.
