Intersport fined for misleading advertising

Hungary's Competition Office (GVH) on Wednesday said it fined Austria's Intersport HUF 5 million for advertising bigger discounts than it actually delivered at its stores in Hungary.

Between June 2007 and July 2008, Intersport advertised an “original” price and a discounted price for products on sale. But the original price has often never been used by the retailer, giving customers the illusion of a much bigger discount, GVH said. (MTI-ECONEWS)
