Organizers of the Switch Apple warehouse sales have been forced to shut their doors at their MyTown shopping mall outlet after the crowds became too much to deal with.
They have cited “security concerns” as the reason for the closure.
Earlier we reported ungodly lines that began well into the night prior, with would-be customers even bringing mobile beds to ensure prime positions once the shop opened.
Many were hoping to get their hands on limited deals that saw 2012 MacBook Pro Retina selling for RM2,800 (US$700) and iPhone 5s’s retailing for RM200 (US$50).
By this morning, the throng covered entire floors of MyTown, and extended onto the street.
Switch employees quickly ceased distributing queue numbers when they realized they could not deal with the droves; however, a few lucky shoppers, slash people who love waiting in line, managed to score their purchases.
When it comes to certain things, it’s best left to the professionals: leave hair cutting to a stylist and leave queuing up to the Singaporeans.
