Countdown slaps an R16 age restriction on all energy drinks

scandal 03/09/2019

Countdown customers will now need to be 16 or older to purchase energy drinks in any of the supermarket's 180 stores!

Countdown's new age restriction kicks off on Monday after the move was announced in late July.

Throughout August, the company says it has been busy spreading the word about the change. Signage is now in stores to remind young shoppers they need to provide ID when buying energy drinks.
