LASCOPA Seals Bazaar Supermarket Over Flagrant Disobedience



Bazaar Supermarket

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

For flagrant disobedience to a lawful directive from a government agency, the outlet of Bazaar Supermarket on Aromire Street, Ikeja, Lagos has been sealed.

The retail store was closed down on Tuesday by officials of the Lagos State Consumer Protection Agency (LASCOPA).

A statement issued by the agency explained that the company displayed some items on its shelves with inadequate information like the date of production, expiration and manufacturer’s details.

According to the General Manager of LASCOPA, Mr Afolabi Solebo, during a routine visit to the place on February 24, 2021, some Croaker Steak, Checkerboard Cookies, Peanut Butter and Prawns were found not to have the above details and the management was told to remove them to protect consumers’ rights.

He said this was part of the efforts of the state government to rid the metropolis of all forms of unwholesome products.

However, he lamented that after another visit to the supermarket, the items were still on display for unsuspecting customers to purchase, insisting that such products would not be removed from their shelves until after 21 days.

This infuriated the agency, which sealed the facility, stressing that the era of selling hazardous products to the public without useful information to protect consumers was over.

The GM of LASCOPA said his agency would not fail to initiate litigation if retail shops and supermarkets do not display product information on their commodities.

While charging consumers not to hesitate to report any supermarket or shops within the state where such products are sold, he enjoined residents to always ensure to check the information contained on the label of items about to be purchased.

Mr Solebo, therefore, implored all members of the public to submit their complaints about any infractions on purchased products or services in its office at 2b, Soji Adepegba Close, off Allen Avenue, Ikeja or send correspondence to the agency’s e-mail addresses: and for necessary action.

Recall that last week, LASCOPA sealed Home Affairs Supermarket in the Ogba area of Lagos State for allegedly displaying expired goods on its shelves.

In reality, not everyone’s endowed with the long, thick lash line. Similar to makeup is employed to reinforce your options; false eyelashes are accustomed to creating your eyes look sound.

There are such a big amount of brands and kinds of eyelashes obtainable within the market, it may be confusing finding the proper one for you. Material, shape, thickness, and length are vital factors to stay in mind once shopping for falsies. So, eyelashes boxes can enhance the outlook of items.

Types of Eyelashes:

For convenience and to own an improved understanding, I’ve classified eyelash boxes into 3 main sorts.

  • Strip Lashes Boxes: These are the common kind of eyelashes boxes we’re acquainted with; within the type of a strip. They’ll be applied to your natural lash line with a skin-friendly adhesive. Except for some individuals, these may be a bit significant and tough to wear particularly for extended durations.
  • Individual Flare Boxes: These are available tiny clusters that may be adjusted among natural cilia in custom eyelash boxes. They’re conjointly applied with adhesive and are comparatively more leisurely to wear. They conjointly look additional natural and don’t place a lot of strain on the eyes.
  • Individual Single Boxes: These are available in tiny parts, simply 2 or 3 lashes. They are adjusted among natural eyelashes and provides the foremost realistic look. If you would like to wear them while not creating it obvious, this is for you. In my expertise, these are in all probability the foremost comfy to wear for extended durations. You don’t even feel you’re carrying some foreign in your lashes.


False eyelashes have to return an extended means since their dawn. At first, it had been simply artificial lashes that were very uncomfortable to wear; some individuals were even allergic to those artificial materials.

No smart makeup whole makes these low-cost synthetics any longer. There are unit four main materials used for creating falsies. Silk eyelashes are artificial; they’re soft and have a luscious feel to the touch.

These are the most affordable kind you’ll be able to realize lately. They are available within the strip, flare, and individual hair type. These lashes aren’t ideal for carrying for extended durations.

Real mink lashes return from the fur of Siberian or Chinese mink. These are harvested from farm-bred minks. These are soft, fluffy, and comfy to wear. I in person don’t like carrying these as a result of, albeit firms claim that minks aren’t injured throughout the gathering, no living being deserves to be treated sort of goods. However, would companies tend to feel if a large unbroken

These boxes are visually enticing for the customers for retailers, it’s vital to point outputting and appealing things significantly if there ought to be a happening of restorative things since people like to purchase attractive things.

To create the business proportion of eyelashes they have seductive packaging for show. To form your eyelashes additional seductive and engaging before customers, you have got to gift them in a very putting approach. Custom prints and plans build a packaging appearance all the additional putting and eye-getting for purchasers initially sight.

Different Patterns:

By victimization enticing colour patterns, designs, styles, and layout on these boxes, you’ll grab the eye of the shoppers to a larger extent than before.

A solid client provides high-quality eco-friendly boxes for shipping and shows functions to the Lash Vendors out there. Sturdy and durable material proof against environmental factors is most popular to use whereas the aim is to ship the things, particularly at the customer’s place.

These boxes for shipping purposes have all the mandatory details written on them relating to the cargo and products themselves.
They usually are available custom-built boxes that do not solely draw the eye of girls however conjointly defend the eyelashes.

Companies tend to build these boxes in numerous designs and shapes to modify your show eyelashes appealingly to your potential customers.

Everyone must have seductive and marvellous Eyelashes to form them look partaking. Several individuals either girls or men haven’t got thick eyelashes so that they would like artificial ones to form their eye appearance higher.
