They seem to do that every weekend anyway,that and clog up the roads.

Did not notice that this last weekend. Roads have been almost eerily quiet including the weekend. Almost a pleasure to drive around.

No experience. But seen a similar picture from some BigC in Bangkok. Non-food taped off.

There's no info what so ever about for example Tesco Lotus not selling non-essential items. Same if using online delivery.

Glad I recently relocated to Siem Reap (Cambodia). Local shops and supermarkets fully stocked with essential and non-essential items - buy what you like, and we get free plastic bags to carry purchases in! Bars and restaurants still open - but quiet, however still plenty of "Western" tourists!

Was in Makro (South Pattaya) yesterday morning. No problem buying booze within the prescribed time periods. Same for 7/11.

My local Makro in Kalasin never sells alcohol, period. I can only guess it's because there's a uni a couple of hundred metres up the road. Of course, the 7-11 right opposite the uni sells it. Just part of living in Thailand, where so often nothing makes any sense.

The Foodland that was taped up yesterday is back to normal now, I guess cooler heads prevailed, but there's still reports online that Makro, Big C and Tesco blocked off non-food sections

I believe the original intent was to limit the number of "browsers" hanging out inside the markets and just have them there for food, meds and TP.

Visited both Tops & BigC in Sakon Nakhon yesterday. Temp check & compulsory hand sanitising at entry points. Booze readily available at both. But then, it is an essential !

It certainly seems to be for you Steven100. 😀

Makro Khon Kaen yesterday morning had taped off the aisles that had stuff like pots and pans, stationery, electrical goods.

Every store/fresh food market where I shop in Jomtien/Pattaya is fully stocked.

Seems fair to the shops that had to close since they're inside malls, can't have other shops selling the same thing still open because they're supermarket and is exempt from the closure/ban 

Sorry,that’s a bit silly. It doesn’t affect the closed shops either way and deprives customers of their needs for say a much needed fridge or washing machine.
