dry bath Buorren’s neighborhood supermarket in Drogeham will close on 3 December. The supermarket has collapsed due to the massive increase in energy prices.
Since February 2018, the supermarket has been run by John and Sunnifa Bruggeman. “A letter we never thought we had to write. After long negotiations and many conversations with the holding, we had to conclude that it could no longer go on like this. Many plans have been put on the table, and its closure seems to be the only correct outcome.”
In November, the entrepreneurial pair shared their concerns about soaring energy prices on Facebook. Then rumors spread in the village about the store. “As a result of the rise in energy costs, we are going through a very difficult time. Our energy costs have skyrocketed from €1,500 to €10,000 per month. Unfortunately, sometimes we have had to make different choices.” they said at the time.
At that time, the shelves were more empty than usual, and according to the local supermarket, it was also because the wholesaler wanted to negotiate cheaper prices and sometimes did not buy products from certain producers.
