The store was closed in September, since the municipality of Åre discovered major shortcomings during an inspection. The municipality of Åre decided that the store would be closed with immediate effect. At a new inspection in mid-October, the municipality decided to continue to keep the store closed. However, the shortcomings have now been fixed so that the shop can be open.

At the strike in September, the municipality of Åre reported a crime to the prosecutor and now two criminal investigations are ongoing from that strike - one about a violation of the Food Act and one about a crime about the Tobacco Act.
In the past, the store is suspected of violating the law on flammable and explosive goods. At a strike in early 2019, 450 kilos of fireworks were found in the store. The store did not have a permit to sell fireworks.
In an interview with NRK Tröndelag, the owners, who live in Trondheim, said that they were subjected to false accusations.
