Sydney Showpo Sale Slammed: Jane Lu’s Apology Can’t Stop Shoppers

Must Read

The CEO of a renowned Australian fashion brand has humbly apologised following their warehouse sale debacle on the weekend, where temperatures escalated to nearly 40C.

On Saturday and Sunday, Showpo held a remarkable sale at their Chullora location in Sydney’s western suburbs. With offerings as low as $5, this event was one you couldn’t afford to pass up!

The event attracted many people, and the queues outside stretched into infinity due to the sun’s blistering heat. Thrifty customers were eager to enter the warehouse but had to wait as they sweltered in line.

Adding to the distress, a heatwave descended on Sydney’s west, with temperatures soaring as high as 38C degrees by Saturday. It was an ill-timed tragedy for many suffering through it.

What’s more, an unpredicted assortment of low-quality production samples was also made available for purchase at the sale.

Shopping-weary customers vented on social networks about the situation, voicing their dissatisfaction. One disgruntled shopper even remarked that waiting for hours in line was an extreme disappointment as the stock available was of such poor quality that it wasn’t worth spending her hard-earned money on.

In a sincere apology, Showpo Founder and Chief Executive Jane Lu acknowledged that she had drastically underestimated the demand for her products.

“It pains me as the CEO to see anyone have a negative experience at our warehouse sale,” Ms Lu expressed on TikTok under @thelazyceo Monday night.

“Who knew a warehouse sale would be such an emotional journey?” she asked her online audience.

“When we initially announced this Facebook event, the attendance numbers were grim, so naturally, our anxiety levels skyrocketed.”

“Surprisingly, Facebook appears to be a thing of the past nowadays.”

“Upon arriving at the sale, there were an unprecedented number of people – five times or more than we had anticipated. It was madness!”

“Even though only 400 people marked they were attending the Facebook event, I knew this would be a success.”

“My elation quickly faded as the line continued to stretch throughout the morning and didn’t seem to be getting any shorter,” Ms Lu continued.

“I sincerely apologise to all those who had the misfortune of standing in such a lengthy line.”

“On the next go-around, we are confident that all issues have been addressed. We will provide additional racks and clothes options, adding more changing rooms, EFTPOS machines and staff members to assist customers.”

“I am immensely thankful to all those who were patient and understanding during this experience, and of course, thank you to those still keen to attend our sale.”
