Mandatory shutdown


E-Mart announces its closing schedule on a signboard in front of one of its stores yesterday in Buk District, Gwangju. The move came after the district decided to make supermarkets close their stores twice a month. The Seoul Metropolitan Government is also forcing large supermarkets to close every second and fourth Sunday of the month; accordingly, Lotte Super and E-Mart were closed for business yesterday. Other retail giants including Homeplus say they will also close their stores for two days a month after the newly-revised Distribution Industry Development Law is put into effect. Local district offices are responsible for enforcing the law. [NEWSIS]
