Why Shopping Is A Drag for Saudi Women

BlogHer Spotlight

[Editor's note: Now that the holidays are over, do you have any gifts you need to return? Of course you do! Maybe something was the wrong size, or color, or you already had pj’s with hearts on them? But what if you couldn’t return the items or get your money back? That’s the case in Saudi Arabia, where a new retail policy is making shopping for women more of a hassle than ever. Eman Al Nafjan at Saudiwoman’s Weblog says the policy is provoking a huge outcry from women.--Mona]

She writes:

Basically according to the new no refund policy, as a consumer in Saudi Arabia, you can no longer be adventurous in trying out new styles and trends. With no fitting rooms inside the shops, buying something to see how it looks has just become a lot riskier. If the customer does not like how something looks on them, they either have to stick with it or take something else instead even if nothing else strikes their fancy.
