Brno, June 16 (BD) – The reason for the closure was rodent droppings, which were found at the site by inspectors, as well as other traces of the presence of rodents and dirt on the floor. Experts cited other causes as the risk of food contamination due to substandard hygiene of the premises and the smell in the store.

“Only part of the establishment was closed, namely the store area. The establishment as a whole was not closed,” stated the CAFIA website.

It is not yet clear if and when the warehouse will reopen.
