Vico Sotto Temporarily Closes Warehouse Supermarket Along C-5
The store will need to make necessary adjustments before reopening.
(SPOT.ph) Grocery shopping isn't exactly at the top of the list of dangerous acts—but the risks involved in the usually mundane activity certainly kicked up a few notches due to the pandemic. Now, our quarantine tributes risk a lot of exposure with every trip as they convene in supermarkets and groceries to keep the rest of the household alive.
That new development is why Mayor Vico Sotto has made sure Pasig City establishments adhere strictly to health protocols, going as far as suspending operations for one large supermarket that wasn't able to. The mayor announced that Landers Supermarket along C-5 in Barangay Ugong has been temporarily shut down beginning July 21 in order to make the necessary adjustments.
"Usually when we suspend for this reason, we don't announce the name. We don't want them to have bad publicity; we just want their customers safe," explained the mayor, who cited a failure to maintain social distancing as the main cause for the temporary suspension. Sotto broke the news himself on his social media pages.
The grocery is scheduled to resume operations on July 27, according to the Inquirer. Meanwhile, the Pasig City administration has asked them to use the next few days to make necessary adjustments in order to adhere to the city's health and safety protocols.
Only grocery operations have been suspended while other shops and services, inluding the restaurant, barbershop, plant shop, pharmacy, and parking lot remains open, clarified the mayor.
