The furniture chain Allied was found guilty yesterday of five charges of placing misleading advertisements between last December and March this year. Magistrates in Reading, Berkshire, were told branches raised prices by 25 per cent and more ahead of a sale which promised 25 per cent off everything. Allied was fined pounds 3,250 under the Consumer Protection Act 1987 and ordered to pay pounds 2,232 costs.
