The Association of Slovak Consumers (ZSS) has put another six enterprises on its blacklist of businesses that it says raised prices unduly in the run-up to Slovakia's adoption of the euro on January 1, ZSS vice-chairman Josef Lounek said on February 3.

ZSS held a 'Euro-Survey' in autumn 2008, setting the threshold for justified price increases in the run-up to euro adoption at 10 percent.

"Price increases over the set 10-percent limit were recorded at six new businesses, while the total number of enterprises in the dog house has increased to 12," Lounek told the TASR newswire.

The latest firms to be added to ZSS’s list are Banská Bystrica-based Europa Fitness Club (two entries), Bratislava Parking Service (BPS), Piešťany Sports Hockey Club (Trnava region), the Vinohrad restaurant in Piešťany (two entries), Slovak Bus Transport (SAD) in Poprad (Prešov region), and the UTD snack bar in Bratislava.
