There are 65,000 grocery stores in the country, according to the United Retailers Group. ( FREE DIARY / NEAL CRUZ )
Rosario said that he would take to the meeting with the government sector the main problems of the sector, which groups more than 65,000 grocery stores that supply the basic needs of the people who live in the most vulnerable sectors of the country, but which cannot reduce their prices due to a matter of “bureaucracy.”
“We are immersed in the framework of unfair competition with supermarkets that receive benefits and incentives from the government,” he said. He also considered it necessary for the Price Stabilization Institute (Inespre) to transfer 50,000 low-cost food combos to the colmados so that they can also sell them to their clients.
The representative of the country’s retail sector made this statement before holding a meeting with shopkeepers of Santo Domingo East and officials of the Ministries of Industry, Commerce, and Mipymes and the National Council for the Promotion and Support of Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (Promipyme).
It always appears here and worldwide small businesses with less weight with government are the ones bearing expenses which the favored large businesses are made immune by accomodation. The end consumers are stuck with the high costs by the practice.
