IC may be needed to buy liquor at 7-Eleven

IC may be needed to buy liquor at 7-Eleven:
"SHAH ALAM: Consumers wishing to buy liquor at 7-Eleven outlets may be required to show their identity cards.

7-Eleven Malaysia executive director Ng Su Onn said the move was among several steps to be implemented at the outlets of the convenience store chain so as to be more responsible to the sensitivities of Muslims.

“We are also considering employing more non-Muslims at 7-Eleven outlets,” he told reporters after meeting Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim, the Liquor Merchants Association, Liquor Retail and Wholesale Association, consumer associations, residents associations and community leaders here yesterday.

Ng said the company had 1,037 outlets and employs 8,000 workers, of whom 7,500 were Muslims.

He said the company was always strict on the sale of liquor to Muslims and those below 18.

“We do not compromise with our staff who sell liquor to Muslims and in the past we have sacked workers for doing so,” he said.

He added that as much as the company was sensitive to Muslims, it also had a responsibility to cater to the needs of the non-Muslims. — Bernama"
