Itens básicos como cola, apontador e cadernos têm grande oscilação de valores

Uma pesquisa da Superintendência para Orientação e Defesa do Consumidor (Procon/MS) apontou que a variação nos preços pode chegar a 755%.

Levantamento foi feito em oito estabelecimentos comerciais da Capital, entre os dias dias 2 e 12 de janeiro, em 126 itens referentes ao material solicitado pelas escolas para uso durante o ano letivo.

Na pesquisa foi constatada uma variação de mais de 755% no item cola bastão de 10g. Salomão lembra ainda que as listas disponibilizadas pelas escolas foram analisadas por técnicos do Procon/MS, em parceria com o Sindicato dos Estabelecimentos de Ensino de Mato Grosso do Sul (Sinepe/MS), sendo que a legislação proíbe a solicitação de material de escritório, marca específica, e de limpeza nas listas de materiais destinados aos alunos. Cadernos capa dura pequeno foram encontrados com valores entre R$ 2,18 a R$ 5,20 e agenda escolar, a mais barata custa R$ 6,61 e a mais cara R$ 19,90.

Superintendente do Procon, Marcelo Salomão orientou que a população use a pesquisa como um norte para que a compra seja feita com mais economia.

"Se o consumidor fizer uma boa pesquisa de preço, ele consegue gastar em média três vezes menos na lista de material escolar".

Mais variações - A pesquisas registrou outras grandes variações, a exemplo da unidade da régua escolar Cristal de 30cm Maped, 459%, com preços entre R$ 1,25 (Arco-Iris - Centro) e R$ 6,99 (Atacadão dos Presentes - Centro); e da caneta esferográfica azul ponta fina, 441%, com preços entre R$ 1,20 (Paper Blue - Centro) e R$ 6,50 (Livraria Nordeste - Centro).
