TORONTO, Feb. 20, 2018 /CNW/ - Management at Pacific Mall has learned that a recent report suggested that some vendors in the mall are selling imitation goods. We are deeply disturbed and disappointed by this news. Management takes compliance with the laws and regulations that govern the sale of goods seriously. Pacific Mall management will be conducting an internal investigation as well as implementing stringent internal measures to stop imitation goods from being traded or sold in the mall. Consequently, preliminary efforts to address this issue include the following:
Issuing written advisories and warnings to all store owners and tenants at Pacific Mall on trading or selling imitation goods, and the legal consequences for engaging in such practices
Requesting store owners and tenants subscribe and comply with a Code of Conduct that imposes various legal and ethical standards relating to the sale of goods
Partnering with manufacturers to assist in identifying imitation products
Commissioning a private investigator to conduct internal audits and monitor for imitation goods
As Pacific Mall management monitors this situation closely, it will continue to adopt various practices that will help discourage such behavior from recurring in the future. Pacific Mall is not only one of North America's busiest retail centres but it also acts as a unique cultural hub for Toronto and GTA residents. Moreover, Pacific Mall has been a retail attraction for millions of local and international tourists. We hope to reaffirm the public's confidence in Pacific Mall as a place where consumers and families can find a wide array of cultural opportunities and products at great value.
