The Consumer Protection Department in Al Dakhiliyah Governorate received a complaint from three consumers stating that after they made an agreement with thee commercial establishments, one of which works in the field of construction and contracting, another in the door and installation sector, and a third one in the kitchen detailing and installation sector.
