This is a new trend: an effect of the crisis?
Some shops open for a short period of time and sell some commodities at low prices.
How can these shops thrive?
- They benefit from empty building where previous businesses went bankrupt. The low cost shop will open for a short time: only until another business occupies the place
- They sell commodities aquired from factories at low prices. In China many factories go bankrupt or get rid of their unsold products!
- They target modest income customers who are looking for small prices and some good deal. Many Chinese customers want to make a good deal!
In this location there was a bank before. Now it is a low cost shop!
Low price posters. It attracts Chinese customers who search for the deal of the century!
The shop owner always stands at the entrance.
He sits at a desk there. This is where you pay.
I am not sure why? Maybe he wants to discourage anyone to steal some product?
