A Cork shop are offering a loop-hole to Minimum Alcohol Pricing
Sam’s Gala in Dunmanway has been the subject of a number of tweets since they have offered a loop-hole to minimum alcohol pricing to customers.
As seen in tweets, the shop are doing a ‘deal’ where if you buy 24 plastic glasses for €30, you will receive a credit note of €47.34, which happens to be the new price of an eight pack of Bulmers cans.
