Long lines and surging interest in imported seafood lead to bare shelves at Shanghai free trade zone
SEAFOODNEWS.COM [Shanghai xinmin.cn] Translated by Amy Zhong - Aug 25, 2014
Last Saturday over 3,000 customers went shopping in Yangshan Imported Food Trade Exhibition Center of Shanghai and the store had to take such measures as limiting the customer number and adding checkout counters. And the center has also built a refrigerated warehouse nearby for the timely replenishment in face of the enthusiastic customers in the weekends. It is also learnt that Boston lobster will be for sale in the center during the beginning of next month.
The customer line has reached about the length of 100 meters in front of the center and there has been few spots left in the free parking areas outdoor at about 8:30 am last Saturday. And these customers still have to wait another half an hour for the store to open. The security guards were busy with maintaining the order and counting the customer number. And they also formed an entry channel with the fences while putting a large exit sign in a place far from the entry.
