I am just over the border in Buriram, my village shop told me today is the last time I can get beer for 14 days. The wholesale delivery company have been told no more delivery's. So even if the local shops want to carry on selling they wont be able to get supply's.

 

Luckily for me my local shop ordered extra Cheers red for me. I have stocked up, so I will not be affected if it continues for a month or so.

Yep, same here in Sumrongthap. Was lucky to get a couple of bottles of whisky and cases of beer. The village big cheese said they were trying to stop people gathering in groups and drinking.

Unlikely. The village headman has been to our shop to warn mum-in-law. about selling alcohol. If shops in our village sell alcohol he is in the s^%t.

 

Besides, most mom and pop shops carry stock for no more than a couple of days. With wholesalers closed, mom and pop shops will soon be out of stock.

I guess there's money to be made in bribes rather than show compassion for struggling businesses

 

Good information - a ban lasting more than a few days will require a serious stock up then

Got 3 boxes of Chang and a tray of cans for a friend that can't get out. This was a sudden announcement with no time to plan anything so everyone was rushing about today, it turns out it started the day before (2nd) but I bought beer from the 7/11 yesterday evening and there were no notices posted. Because of this I could get beer today but I was told in the shop it was only for today. I'm very sure if needed I could go to most momma poppa shops and get a few bottles of cold beer if required. This is a pointless exercise for no return as people who want a few beers will go searching for it now instead of being able to buy it in Big C or Makro etc along with their groceries.
