MANILA, Philippines — The local government of Pasig City has suspended a branch of membership supermarket Landers in Barangay Ugong for failing to observe physical distancing.
In his post on Twitter, Mayor Vico Sotto explained that they usually do not announce business names that violate the policy in consideration of their reputation.
But in the case of Landers, the Mayor opted to reveal the name for the safety of the shoppers given the supermarket’s large number of members.
According to Sotto, only the grocery is temporarily closed but the restaurant, barbershop, plant shop, pharmacy, and parking space remain open for business.
Sotto said the management of the supermarket already expressed compliance with the policy.
“We encourage them to use the next few days to improve their health/safety protocols,” Mayor Sotto concluded.

Usually when we suspend for this reason, we dont announce the name. We dont want them to have bad publicity; we just want their customers safe.
But this is a big business,so youll probably hear abt it anyway. pic.twitter.com/7lHRtGzuNl
