During the Spring Festival, I found that everyone adjusted it to seventy or eighty yuan, then they all adjusted it to seventy or eighty yuan. After the first day of the new year, even if it rose to seventy or eighty yuan, the sales speed did not drop, so it went up another ten or twenty yuan.

3. Consolidate the main responsibility of safety and
3. Consolidate the main responsibility of safety and
continue to improve the consumer experience
The high-altitude flying chair is out of control, the amusement suspension bridge is tilted, the fireworks detonate the manhole cover, the carbon monoxide exceeds the standard, and the cold light fireworks are banned....
The multiple personal safety accidents that occurred during the Spring Festival holiday have become the biggest hotspots and pain points of public opinion.
The right to safety is the basic right of consumers to be protected by law. Consumer safety involves the most concerned, most direct and realistic interests of the people, and it is also the foundation and guarantee for the sustained and healthy development of the consumer market.
The theme of the 2021 Consumer Rights Protection Year is "Guardian Security, Smooth Consumption".
This is an inevitable requirement to promote the construction of a new development pattern, a practical action to thoroughly implement the new development concept, a strong support for achieving a good start and a good start in the new development stage, and a faithful practice of people-centered development thinking.
In response to the hotspots and pain points of personal safety accidents that public opinion is concerned about during the Spring Festival, the China Consumers Association puts forward three suggestions.
(1) Fulfill the responsibilities of market entities.
This year, various localities advocated "Chinese New Year in situ". The number of tourists in some nearby outings and rural scenic spots has increased dramatically, posing severe challenges to the reception and safety guarantee capabilities of the scenic spots.
The flying chair in operation during the holiday season is out of control, which makes people doubt whether its daily safety maintenance is in place; the "net celebrity" suspension bridge has loose load-bearing ropes and the bridge deck is tilted. Its quality and safety management are also questionable. .
The main body of the market is the first person responsible for consumer safety. It is recommended that the main body of the market raise their ideological awareness and establish a "safety first" business awareness; implement the main responsibility, achieve layer-by-layer decomposition and implementation; adhere to the problem-oriented, earnestly carry out self-examination, and timely Find problems and solve them; strengthen risk investigation and resolutely prevent consumer safety accidents.
(2) Implement supervision and management responsibilities.
To strengthen industry supervision, it is recommended that the supervision and management department put consumer safety in a prominent position, strengthen daily supervision and inspection, and change "post supervision" to "pre-supervision", plug consumer safety loopholes, and stick to the red line of consumer safety.
Judging from the hot spots of public opinion during the Spring Festival, personal safety accidents involving public facilities tend to occur frequently, and some even paid a heavy price in their lives, adding a touch of pain and sorrow to the festive and happy New Year holidays.
The reason is that in addition to the lack of awareness and ability of the perpetrator and the inadequacy of relevant guardianship, it is also related to the fact that the relevant responsible units have not tightened the string of safety supervision.
The safety of public facilities such as "small manhole covers" is related to the "big people's livelihood". It is recommended that relevant responsible entities increase the intensity of standardization and rectification, and promote the advancement of supervision gates to effectively plug the loopholes in safety accidents.
Strengthen daily supervision and inspection, establish a responsibility investigation mechanism, and implement safety responsibilities to people.
At the same time, a warning sign was added to enhance the public's ability to take precautions actively.
Schools, communities, and parents must put child safety education first and perform their guardianship duties to prevent similar tragedies from happening again.
(3) Continue to improve the consumer experience.
The skyrocketing movie ticket prices are ostensibly driven by the market, and in-depth analysis also involves the consumer experience in the transaction.
In order to pursue commercial interests, movie theaters raise movie prices and then ignore the mass attributes of movie consumption during the festival. This is tantamount to killing chickens. Once they lose the trust and understanding of consumers, it will ultimately be their own long-term development that will be harmed.
With the continuous upgrading of consumption and the continuous improvement of the consumption environment, people pay more attention to the psychological feelings in the consumption process.
If an enterprise only pursues economic benefits and ignores the psychological feelings of consumers, it is tantamount to fishing out.
Therefore, it is recommended that market entities pay attention to credit in their business activities, keep their promises, and continuously improve the consumption experience, so that consumers can eat with peace of mind, buy with confidence, and use comfortably. Only in this way can they embark on the path of healthy development and compete in the fierce market. Be neutral and invincible.
