Sell alcohol and pork or we will shut you down, French town tells halal supermarket
by Rory Mulholland
A halal supermarket in a Paris suburb has been told by local authorities it must start selling alcohol and pork or else it will be shut down.
Good Price discount mini-market in Colombes has been told by the local housing authority, from which it rents its premises, that it has not followed the conditions on the lease that stipulate that the shop must act as a "general food store."
The authority argues that all members of the local community are not being served properly if there are no alcohol or pork products in the Good Price store, which is run as a franchise and which last year replaced another small supermarket.
