Crowds flock to world’s largest Disney store
weekend spent less than one hour in the store to buy what they wanted, which saved much time for those waiting outside.
To ensure the safety of customers, the number of visitors in the store is limited to around 100, which led to the long waiting line and crowds outside the store.
“There is no need to line up for one hour on weekdays, customers can pop in and take items to the cashier and walk out of the store within half an hour,” said a security guard on the site who also refused to give names according to the policy.
Some limited edition items have been designed to celebrate the opening of the store, such as Mickey Mouse toys with Disney Shanghai or Disney 2015 embroidered on the feet, and mugs and key rings printed with Chinesestyle lane houses. A series of “I Love Shanghai” products will be exclusively offered at the Shanghai store.
Those goods selling in the store also have become a favorite for tourists and local residents.
“My friends and relatives gave me a list of items to buy when they heard that I was travelling to Shanghai with a pass by of the store, which will become a must-go spot for national travelers,” said Zheng Nan, a tourist from Changsha, Hunan province, who bought two bags of toys.
