In 2016, the village supermarket in Chiang Mai became the first to be taken offline after the collapse of the once booming market.
It is still not the only supermarket in the country to go dark.
In April, the Chiang Saen and Suan Chiang supermarkets in Suan Kiang district of Thammarat province, went offline after authorities closed them due to a lack of funding.
Another village supermarket has closed for good after a flood in April that left around 200 customers stranded.
There are also fears that the marketplaces will be overwhelmed with shoppers this Christmas and New Year, when prices are expected to be lower.
Last week, the Ministry of Tourism and Culture announced that a number of the local supermarkets would reopen this year, but they will have to be closed from mid-December to early January.
They are expected back by January 8.
