Check Of Arizona Retailers Shows High Compliance Level

December 23, 2013

State officials said a check of stores across Arizona showed people are generally getting what they pay for, when they buy holiday items this year. Shawn Marquez is compliance director for the Department of Weights and Measures. He said they checked 695 items at 34 retailers and found 99.5 percent of them properly marked.   

“Artificial trees, prelit trees, wreaths, Christmas lights, you name it. Anything to do with Christmas, we inspected it," said Marquez.

Marquez said this is one of the first years they have found such a high compliance level at retailers across Arizona.
