Denominated price tags to appear in stores on 1 April

The Commerce Ministry has proposed to use the price tags and menu items in the shops and the catering with current prices and those that will be after the denomination. The change is planned for April 1, but will be introduced no later than June 1st. The relevant clarification was posted by the agency on its official website.

The Commerce Ministry has also suggested price lists and samples of design, menu and tariffs. During the dual circulation of the old and new money, it is recommended, for example, to use on product labels and other info about the value of goods a two-color etiquette-tape, multi-etiquette-pistols, specify the price of goods in money of 2000 and 2009 on two stickers.

The Minsitry recommends that customers get informed about the price indications "before the denomination" and "after the denomination" with alerts in accessible areas, through radio and in other ways.

Denomination in Belarus will take place on July 1, 2016. Old money will be exchanged for new at the ratio of 10,000: 1. After that, until January 1, 2017, the old and the new money will be used in parallel.
