Wonderful news, alcohol and fags kill.

 

Booze very nearly killed me on numerous occasions, and trying to quit the fags again from today.

Just worked out how much I save. Two large bottles of whisky and 5-10 Chang's a day would bankrupt me today!

I just wonder if they had so much stock in the warehouse under the old excise rate that they are still selling that stock so price have not changed.

 

Not until they deplete that stock and start selling new stock procured under the new excise rate that the price would possibly change.

 

In an earlier post I said a case of Leo beer big bottles at the Lotus I use was Bt588 before the new rate and a few days after the new rate the price was Bt584...went down 4 baht.  However I noticed a few days later that their stock of beer on the store shelves was really low or Leo and Chang cases....I mean like I had never seen it this low....almost out of stock...no normal at all for this Lotus store....but the price was still Bt584 for a Leo case. 

 

Now I haven't been back to since to see if they have restocked and check the latest prices....maybe I'll go tomorrow out of curiosity .

 

 

On Friday I was in our local Makro and Tesco Lotus.  Leo big bottles were still 584 Baht. Macro had boxes dated August and Tesco had boxes dated 09/09/2017.

 

I was in Makro today and the price has increased to 614 Baht. Still the same date on boxes as Friday.

A 30 Baht increase and this works out at 2.5 baht per bottle or approximately 0.05%  percent increase per box

As of yesterday (7Oct) the Lotus store I use here in western Bangkok a case of large Leo bottles was still Bt584.   I've been expecting it would go up....and since you are seeing Bt614 in both Makro and Lotus I will not be surprised on my next visit to my Lotus store (probably on 9 or 10 Oct) that the price will be Bt614.   I'll report back what I find.

I did not check Tesco today. Cannot say if they increased or remained the same.

Have just returned from Tesco Lotus (Phuket) and although I never checked the prices of the beers (as I rarely drink it) I can tell you that the beer shelves were 50% empty and one Thai guy was struggling through the check out with two shopping trolleys absolutely full of cans of Leo and boxes of the stuff piled high! .......expecting a price increase shortly?

 

However I did check the price of the wines and they hadn't increased!........yet!
