Supermacs founder is sorry to close outlets due to pandemic

The founder and owner of Supermacs says he is sorry to have to close his outlets around the country for the next several weeks but that there was no other choice to make.

Supermacs outlets around the country will close from around 7 o’ clock this evening.
