    Dear Sir, Do you expect people to go that far just to by a kilo of sugar or something else. It should be readily available in any closest market.

    Those who shop in Sathosa can never get these soecial priced items and the rest of the population who do not ship at Sathosa have to pay for the losses of Sathosa plus the government . This is a joke
