Jeju Special Self-Governing Province is seeking to bolster sales at traditional markets by imposing a two-day mandatory closure of large, corporate supermarkets.

Among the major retailers subject to these closures beginning June 8 are are Emart and Lotte Mart in Jeju City, and Homeplus in Seogwipo City.

Every second Friday and fourth Saturday, these stores will be closed for business. The supermarket outlets run by the National Agricultural Cooperative Federation (Nonghyup) are not affected.

The Jeju Weekly has a number of related stories.
