I can understand oil and other commodities, but retail is pocket change. You’re just pissing off shoppers.

Chavez is forcing retailers to keep prices below cost despite devaluation, at least until the coming Venezuelan election is over. He doesn’t want shoppers to see the real devastation to their savings and income. So he makes an example of one foreign retail firm to bully the others. No doubt store shelves are emptying fast because imported goods are not arriving at the ports. Chavez was bullying Toyota to assemble more vehicles, fat chance they will send many parts. lol
