THE BRONX - The holiday shopping season is officially underway, and News 12 is offering tips on what consumers should be aware of when shopping for the perfect gift.

It is important that consumers educate themselves with a product's price before buying it. If a business is advertising a sale, it is required that the store post both the original price as well as the sale price of an item.

Shoppers should also make sure of a store's refund policy before making any purchases, in case something needs to be returned at a later date.

Asking for a receipt is also crucial because businesses are not always required to provide them. A receipt is important so consumers can make sure they have been charged correctly.
