On any given day, consumers receive products or services from an establishment that is regulated by the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS). Establishments such as grocery stores, gas stations, garden centers, frozen dessert shops and bingo halls work with VDACS to ensure they follow laws and regulations intended to protect consumers.
Consumer protection is a VDACS core priority, as the agency is charged with ensuring integrity within the marketplace.
