Shoppers Abandon Trolleys

Photos showing dozens of abandoned shopping trolleys filled with freebies as part of a government giveaway have been widely shared on social media over the past 24 hrs.

Chaos descended upon a branch of Tesco Lotus in the Laksi district of Bangkok on Sunday afternoon after the ‘Pao Tang’ app crashed sending shoppers heading for home without their freebies.

The app was developed by the state-run Krung Thai Bank to facilitate payments under the “Chim-Shop-Chai” (Eat-Shop-Spend) program that will see 10 million Thais get 1,000 baht in free shopping.

KTB shutdown the system overnight for upgrades but blamed the supermarket giant for the disruption stating they didn’t provide adequate facilities to meet demand across 20 branches in Bangkok they assigned to take part in the program.
