Did you know that when you make a purchase, no matter how small, you are entering into a contract?
Research carried out by Kent County Council (KCC) shows that a majority of Kent residents are unaware of their consumer rights.
It's good to be aware of what your rights are as a shopper, even when you're making small everyday purchases.
There are lots of useful tips and advice on the KCC website, whether you've got questions about the quality of something you've purchased; if you've changed your mind about something you've bought or even with questions you may have around parking and transport.
By shopping with retailers you know well you reduce your risks to falling victim of consumer crime. All of our town centre businesses are trusted trades people and brands.
