Puregold Apologize, Corrects Baffling “Public Service Advisory” That Went Viral

Supermarket and grocery chain operator Puregold apologized to the public and corrects their baffling “public service advisory” that went viral on social media.

Recently, a “public service advisory” posted at the entrance of a supermarket went viral on Facebook. It states (published as is): “16 yrs. Old to 65 yrs. Old ARE NOT ALLOWED TO ENTER THE STORE.

“Under IATF supervision all business establishments will not allow to enter at the age of 16 yrs. old to 65 yrs. old under GCQ / General Community Quaranty.”

It was shared on Facebook by automotive journalist James Deakin, and some of his followers reacted hilariously. Because according to him, at long last, there is a place that will accept both minors and seniors.

According to IATF guidelines, anybody under the age of 18 and anyone over the age of 65 must remain in their homes at all times, save to buy basic products and services, work in factories and offices, or engage in other activities approved by the GCQ.

As a result, a slew of memes quickly swept through Facebook. The Puregold management replied on the post when it went viral and received a lot of attention online.

“We heard you! At napalitan na natin ang signage. Atleast, napatunayan natin na nagbabasa talaga ang mga ka-Puregold! And most importantly, NAPATAWA naming kayo!” they said.

“Tuloy po kayo sa Puregold stores this weekend! 18-65 yo,” it added.

In response to a request for clarification, Puregold’s vice president of investor relations stated, “We have already rectified the erroneous poster.” Puregold outlets will only be open to those between the ages of 18 and 65, according to Hao.
