The Consumer Affairs Commission, CAC, is urging parents to be wary of counterfeit products during their back-to-school shopping.
Director of Communications at the CAC, Latoya Halstead, says parents should be careful of purchasing severely marked down items.
Ms. Halstead recommended that parents conduct research before purchasing items, such as shoes and bags for their children.
She also encouraged parents to spend time checking items when they are in the physical store.
The CAC Director of Communications also shared advice for parents on the issue of purchasing textbooks.
Ms. Halstead also recommended that parents explore purchasing books from parents whose children are older.
