‘Hike in school supplies prices, just’
by Maria Teresa B. Benas / PIA

BANGUED, Abra – The Department of Trade and Industry provincial office said that the increase in the prices of schools supplies is reasonable, based on the monitoring it conducted in time for the opening of classes on June 4.

DTI Information Officer Mark Rex Hall said that although there is an increase in prices of school supplies this year, prices are still little lower than the suggested retail price (SRP).”
He said businessmen cannot impose prices higher than those of their competitors. Otherwise, they cannot sell their items.

Retail establishments usually have the same prices because they purchase from one supplier.

Also in time for this year’s class opening, the DTI conducted a Diskwento Caravan in Manabo in which consumers from the upland towns of Boliney, Luba, Tubo, and other parts of Bucay benefitted.

Ahead of the June 4 opening of classes, the DTI published a price guide that consumers can use when purchasing school supplies. The price guide covers the SRP of specific brands of notebook, pad paper, pencil, ballpen, crayon, eraser, sharpener, and ruler.

The DTI has also been warning business operators from taking advantage of the opening of classes to unjustly increase the prices of school supplies.
