Better business bureau
What is the place in Belgium to complain about shops? Match in Stockel is a real rip-off. How do they justify 500 g of yoghurt which costs 1.70 euros at other supermarkets as 2.90? I can understand a certain range but this is a rip-off? I want to hear their justifications? Is there not anything that is similar to Better Business Bureau which defends consumer rights?
Thanks for the suggestions.

However I can't for the life of me see how this would be any kind of issue of complaint. Provided that the price is clearly marked, you have no recourse. There are no set food prices in Belgium (I don't actually know of any EU Members State where there are, but would like to hear if this is the case). Shops are totally free to set their prices as they see fit, and it's up to the consumer to check the prices and decide if they want to pay or not. If Match charges more for this particular yoghurt, do not buy it from them.
Shop elsewhere. The rents in Stockel Square are horrendous. You pay the premium for the convenience.
What was the response when you complained to the management of Match?
That would be the first thing that would be asked if you complained in a similar situation to the Better Business Bureau back in the US.
Are you talking about exactly the same yoghurt? Not that it really matters.
If you don’t like a shop’s prices, you go elsewhere. It is a free market. You choose. Albert Heine are very competitive. My local 24/7 garage is not, BUT it is very convenient.
I'm laughing my head off! You are free to shop wherever you want. Shops are free to set their prices, even if the price does not please you. Seriously, you are going to tell them how to set their price? Obviously people are buying, because it's convenient for them.
