7/11 Restrictions On Selling Alcohol

43 posts in this topic

Took a late night visit to 7/11 ( 12.13am ) in Phuket last night to stock up on a few cans of Beer, only to be told by the staff that they are now obliged to the new regulations of only being able to sell Alcohol between 11am - 2pm and 5pm - 12am...

What is happening? only last month you where able to buy alcohol 24/7 at 7/11 ( apart from Buddist Days and Elections )

I have been here 3 years now, and these new laws IE no smoking in clubs and pubs are getting out of control!

Not sure which branch of 'Seven' you are frequenting but the chain has been observing these regulations for several years now. Signs are on fridge doors in many branches. It's kinda hard to believe that you've been here three years and never come up against this before.

Never have a problem at my local 7/11 in BKK. The only time they wont serve alcohol is between 2 and 5, which is no problem as the local mom and pop shop in our soi are always more than obliging.

The workers might be worried about getting into trouble as it will be recorded on the register that they have sold alcohol after hours.

For someone who places themselves at the top of the pyramid of English language usage by rushing to correct others' typos, it's amusing to see your infantile grasp of basic English punctuation.

I don't think he likes your use of single ears as a stress/quote mark, maybe "Seven" or even just Seven would be more acceptable, I understood what you meant :D

I'm not sure the use of the word "infantile" is appropriate.

Anyway, we are more than mildly off topic and I too am surprised he's not come across this ruling before, it's been around for some time :D

At the end of our Soi, we have Family Mart, 7/11 and a Mini Big C all within 75 metres of one another. They are all open 24 hours, and they all serve late night/early morning beers.

The OP is about the Alcohol Laws.

Enough of this bickering.

This, along with taking alcoholic beverages out of gas station convenient stores: If it even provides a dent (and IMO it does) in drinking and driving during the time when most folks are on the road... when kids are going to and from school, it's a good thing.

The next 7 down the road would likely be happy to sell it to you, I often buy late at night as I frequently don't go out until 2 or 3. If at first you don't succeed .....
