A lot quieter today.

A day after the chaos that was July 26, Huawei has reopened their stores to the public on July 27.

Members of the public hung on to hope

Chinese newspaper Lianhe Zaobao reported that all 10 Huawei concept stores have reopened, including the JEM outlet that made the news after a woman was arrested for criminal trespass on their premises.

While the announcement has been made that the Huawei Y6 pro phones were fully out of stock, there were still several members of the public who tried their luck, hoping to be able to snag the phone at the promotional price.

Zaobao reported that at the Jurong East Huawei outlet, at least 10 people had entered the store when it opened at 11 am.

One person even loudly told a staff member that “[the phone] being out of stock yesterday doesn’t mean that there wouldn’t be stocks today.”

Of course, those who were hoping to get lucky today were all let down, as Huawei employees told them the same thing — the phone had already gone out of stock.

Nothing out of the ordinary

When Mothership scanned the Somerset branch at about 5 pm on July 27, it was business as usual, nothing particularly out of place for a Saturday afternoon.

Save for a banner informing the public that the Y6 pro was sold out at their outlet, one wouldn’t have guessed that a commotion happened at all.
