UPDATE: CITY HALL STOPS CLEARANCE SALE DUE TO MASS GATHERING
There was a failure of crowd management at least initially particularly on implementation of health protocols like physical distancing on the first day of the Clearance Sale at Limketkai Mall today, August 15, 2020.
As clearly shown in the photos below courtesy of Howard Dy and Dennis Bongocan, the supposed 1 meter distance between shoppers was more like 1 inch…. photos taken during mall opening at 10:00am. Up to 80% off can be availed on selected sports items by Nike, Adidas, New Balance and Pro Touch which will run until August 21.
Just wondering if the clearance sale event was properly coordinated with local authorities.
Here’s the official statement of Limketkai Mall.
Due to the unexpected number of shoppers of The Warehouse Clearance Sale, some safety health protocols were not observed. Please be advised that our management have temporarily stopped the said activity at the Atrium which was thereafter seconded and approved by the City government.
Our management will still meet with them. Please wait for further update for their sale.
Rest assured that Limketkai Mall is one with the government in their campaign in fighting the spread of COVID-19.
