Last week, the continuation of the Justo & Bueno liquidation process was ordered. This, because the Superintendence of Societies did not receive a bailout offer by the investors who had said they would put in the 300 billion pesos the chain needed to continue operating.
The liquidator manager, Darío Laguado, issued a delivery schedule for the premises that must not exceed 20 calendar days. The idea is that the owners of the properties can regain control of them peacefully, in order to avoid affecting third parties.
