Panic purchases of beers due to plant closings (video)


Many people emptied store displays after statements by the Governor of Nuevo Léon.

Monterrey.- After the declarations of the governor of Nuevo León, Jaime Rodríguez that the production and sale of beers in the country will be stopped, panic purchases are already registered in several businesses.

At Costco de Cumbres there are dozens of people lined up to pay and carry in their carts at least two boxes of 24 beers 

In addition, in some wooden pallets, the product is out of stock.

In a warehouse on Raúl Rangel Frías Avenue, located next to a headquarters in Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma, employees said that since 10:00 a.m., there are lines of at least 10 vehicles to buy beer.

” Up to 20 covers people take, ” said a worker as he loaded some cardboard into a truck.

He added that these sales only occur when there will be a dry law.

The employee commented that he has no information that beer production will be suspended and that more will come on Friday, but people were scared by the news.

Interviewed clients agreed that they come to buy “if in doubt.”

In the morning, the rumor circulated that the Heineken Mexico plants, formerly Cervecería Cuauhtémoc, could temporarily stop their production starting next Friday, April 3, but the company has not confirmed this version.
