Switch Says They Are Sorry For Cancelling Warehouse Clearance Sale
The Apple Premium Reseller promised to do better in future.
"We are truly sorry for the Demo Clearance Event," Switch posted on its Facebook page, referring to its sale for Apple products at MyTown Shopping Centre in Cheras that had to be cancelled due to safety concerns after a massive crowd of 11,000 people turned up
On Friday, during the day one of Switch's Warehouse Clearance sale the crowd grew too big for Switch and MyTown to handle as the former was forced to close less than two hours after opening its doors to the public.
According to Switch's Facebook post, the move was made together with MyTown Management to ensure the safety of the crowd.
While Utusan Malaysia had previously estimated the crowd size to be around 3,000, Switch on Saturday said that there were 11,000 people and they felt "overwhelmed".
In its apology posted on its Facebook page on 3 March, Switch said:
While promising to do better in future, Switch added that they have extended the sale of Apple products to all its branches nationwide
The discounted price at 30 of its retail outlets nationwide is till Sunday, 4 March.
