DBKL postpones ban of liquor sales by groceries, Chinese medicine shops


The ban on liquor sales by grocery and convenience shops as well as Chinese medicine halls around the capital scheduled to come into effect tomorrow has been postponed for a month, until Oct 31.

Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) announced in a statement today that the postponement of the ban’s enforcement was to allow a study related to the control of liquor sales in Kuala Lumpur to be completed.

“The availability and accessibility of liquor have been the subject of complaints and protests as it can be detrimental to public order,” the statement said.

The statement also said that currently retail liquor licence owners were still allowed to sell liquor in grocery shops, convenience stores and Chinese medicine halls until Oct 30, 2021.

DBKL had previously issued liquor licence guidelines effective Nov 15, 2020, which states that sales of liquor at grocery stores, convenience stores and Chinese medicine halls would not be allowed from Oct 1, 2021 (tomorrow).
