Specialty grocery store Wilfred’s will not be selling liquor as the province of Ilocos Norte braces for Ramon and Sarah’s landfall. Governor Matthew Marcos Manotoc ordered a liquor ban on November 19, 2019, effectively prohibiting the “sale, giving, offering, purchase, consumption, and serving of intoxicating drinks during the onslaught of Typhoon Ramon and Tropical Depression Sarah”.
Due to Executive Order No. 36-19, Wilfred’s will not be selling liquor in any shape or form until the ban is lifted. It is noted that the shop has been posting a public service announcement on how to prepare for flooding and landslides for the past few days.
