Huge Discounts this Coming Ramadan
During the Holy Month, there is usually a general increase in the sale of food and groceries. Hence, to ensure that everything goes smoothly — the Ministry of Economy, along with suppliers and traders — held meetings, where they agreed on discounts and initiatives.
In relation to this, the Director of Consumer Protection at the Ministry, Dr. Hashim Al Nuaimi, has stated that supermarkets and cooperatives around the country will be offering 25 to 50 percent discounts.

- 1st Package — 20 items costing less than AED 100
- 2nd Package — 20 items costing less than AED 200

Meanwhile, Al Nuaimi also encouraged shoppers to make suggestions or report complaints. To file a suggestion or complaint, you may contact the Consumer Protection Department by calling 600-522-225 or sending an email to email@example.com.
