Latvian mobile network operator, Bite is handing out free doses of Vitamin C to all customers who visit one of its stores before the middle of next month. The company said the PR stunt was a response to the austerity measures implemented by the government.
"It is important for us not only to provide our customers with high quality services for good prices, but also to care for them daily. Therefore, to help them get over the grey stage in nature as well as public economy we want to cheer our customers up with vitamins. I think it is going to be a good encouragement and a reason to smile," says Oksana Stankevica, Customer Care Director at "Bite Latvija".
As a part of numerous austerity measures from January 1 of this year new amendments to the Law on Value Added Tax come into effect stipulating that instead of the former 21% the value added tax for goods and services is being raised to 22%.
Bite Latvija Customer Care Director Oksana Stankevica adds that prices of "Bite" services and products before VAT will not be raised and that the final prices will grow only due to the higher VAT. In case of questions or uncertainties "Bites" customers can visit any customer care outlet anywhere in Latvia or get in touch with the team of "Bite" Customer Care.
