Rabat- Marjane Holding’s administration decided to stop selling alcoholic beverages in all of its supermarkets across Morocco.
This unprecedented decision has taken aback many Marjane clients as soon as they noticed that alcoholic beverages booths were closed.
The decision to stop selling alcohol beverages has been gradual. Over a year ago, Marjane’s administration announced its decision to stop selling alcohol beverages in many of its supermarkets across the country.
Marjane administration had faced sharp criticism for selling alcohol in high-crime areas. There have been series of protests by local residents against these stores especially in Temara where 17 people were arrested during a demonstration in the summer of 2012.
So far, Marjane hasn’t justified the decision, and clients and providers alike wonder about the reasons that prompted the holding to stop selling alcoholic beverages.
Marjane has currently 32 supermarkets spread in the main cities of Morocco. Marjane is a subsidiary of the Royal holding SNI.
