Costco's first China store closed on opening day



Beloved bulk-buy emporium Costco kept the much hyped opening of its first China location today – and closed immediately due to floods of interest.

After holding a private ceremony on Monday, Costco Shanghai opened its doors to the masses on Tuesday, causing traffic jams within a mile radius of the store's remote suburban space according to Financial Times reporter Tom Hancock: [19659003] ocean of people as the first ever Costco opens in Shanghai … traffic jam for> 1 km around the store 人山人海 pic.twitter.com/o0g3ZRBOpR

Costco members received a text message at 11:29 local time, advising advising customers to avoid high traffic hours in the afternoon. Within 13-13, they ended it with a text message that followed up with the message that customers would not come.

Dear Member, Hi! Due to the crowded traffic in the store, to give you a better shopping experience, the store opening has been closed from the afternoon of 27 August. Please avoid walking.

We here at RADII are already proud card-carrying members of Costco Shanghai, and will make it over there for a slice and a year's supply of wasabi peas … just as soon as the crowd dies down. Follow our ground message!
