Say no to the bottle store

Dear Pick n Pay, my name is Jessie Ace, and I am 14 years old.

I am writing to you to beg you not to put a bottle store in our town of Fish Hoek.

Last night I was crying about it – I have to walk to MMA every night, and if you have a bottle store in the town, I will not be safe because there will be drunk people on the streets.

Please hear me. We moved here because of the 200-year heritage of no bottle stores in the town.

Alcohol is bad and destroys families. Families will suffer. Thank you.
