Customers turning up at the Wellcome “superstore” in Sai Kung today were met by a steel shutter and a notice saying, Bye-bye. The notice said you’ve got two choices: Go to the tiny Wellcome at Lakeside Gardens or use Wellcome Delivers. There was no mention of whether the “superstore” will return once new premises are found.
Earlier BUZZ stories have reported the location changed hands and the new owner promised it to ParknShop. The latter is an impenetrable bureaucracy that does not answer press enquiries.
Coincidentally or not, the Schmidt Vinothek store next to what was the Wellcome entrance has closed too. Does this mean the new ParknShop will have a better entrance? Including escalators?
