Where has all the beer gone ?

Recommended Posts

Right after the tax increase announcement I bought the last 5 Chang Classic big bottles on the shelf at BigC Central Rd at the old price.

A few days ago I bought same at Friendship at new price : 48b.

My Thai wife tells me that her aunt's country store has beer & that the storage room behind has cases of recently purchased (before the price hike) in reserve.

Where you live?

I'm staying home tonight. There'll be Falang rioting in the streets if the Bar Beers have run dry.

Oh wait, no beer, no drunk Falang? It's a chicken and egg sort of situation.

Nuh, I'll stay home. coffee1.gif

Quit drinking, don't care!

Never ever drank alcohol, don't care either.

This tax hike is very confusing, on the 10th of this month I ordered new wine stock for my wife's shop from Siamwinery.

They do the Mont Clair range, the local rep. said I can't have it until next month and he has no idea what the price will be.

Surely large companies like this can work out the tax, or maybe the government are still unsure.

Best supermarket has put up their prices already. LEO before was 46 baht a big bottle, now 54 baht. That is an 18% increase in prices!facepalm.gif

Last I heard, the government had announced the tax increase and the date it is to start, but it is yet to go through parliament. (I could be wrong here.) So the problem is no one knows if the tax increase is going to happen. This would explain the confusion in the supply chain as to the cost.
