Antimonopoly watchdog seeks review of ad dispute with department store
MOSCOW, September 1 - RAPSI, Alyona Yegorova. The Moscow District Federal Commercial Court will hear on September 19 the Federal Antimonopoly Services (FAS) cassation appeal against a lawsuit to invalidate its order issued to the TsUM Department Store to remove adverts containing the foreign word "SALE", the court told the Russian Legal Information Agency.
The FAS declared TsUMs adverts reading "-30 percent; -50 percent; SALE" illegal on Oct. 21, 2010 as they contained foreign words that had the potential to mislead customers.
The Moscow Commercial Court invalidated the FAS order on February 1 and the appeals court upheld the decision in June.
The FAS then filed a cassation appeal against the judgments.
The TsUM Department Store is an oldest and most well-known store in Moscow. It was established by the Muir and Mirrielees trading house in 1885.
