PHUKET: Police arrested a man this morning (Mar 26) for charging illegally inflated prices for bottles of alcohol-based hand sanitiser at the Phuket Grocery supermarket centre in Phuket Town.

 

 

 

Lt Col Sakchai Soonyong of the Phuket City Police along with Commercial Affairs Phuket office chief Sasiwimon Mongkhon and other officers arrived at the popular mall at about 10:30am.

 

The inspection followed police receiving a formal complaint filed by Jiraporn Mark, 38, who said she bought two bottles of alcohol which were priced at B309 each.

Same in Bangkok, I haven't been in out since they closed the malls but I know a drug store in Central Lad Prao that was charging 375 baht for a large bottle of Hand Gel  I bought  a few weeks before for 89 baht.

I can't even find any blue alcohol in my area any size.
