Ethical businesses: We're changing currency, not prices

Some 300 businesses with over 10,000 outlets have agreed as part of the Ethics Code Project to display special stickers confirming each owner's promise not to raise prices during euro-adoption period in Slovakia, Igor Barát of Government Proxy for the Introduction of the Euro told the TASR on July 24. The signatures have been gathered in a campaign that began two years ago. An even more intensive campaign to add more names to the list is now underway.
