I was about to walk in a H shop in Hong Kong (causeway bay shop in HK side) in a peak hour time (7pm Sunday) but the entrance was blocked by a metal bar. The sales came to me and said it was closed down temporarily. I saw there were 4 clients inside, 2 pairs of couple - 1 younger couple and 1 older couple. I could not recognise who they are, but was sure they are not any well-known Hong Kong celebraties or tycoons. I knew that H shop or other brand name shop do shut down their shop temporarily for special clients, but only after the shop closes, as far as I can see. I think the shut down is either due to - the client is a VVIP OR the client is making super big purchases, and there are not enough sales to manage. What do you think of this practice? I think it will be better to shut down during non-peak hours.
