Costco opened its first China flagship store — and things got crazy

It was an open-and-quickly-shut deal.

China’s flagship Costco outlet opened its doors Tuesday morning in suburban Shanghai, only to close them several hours later after the store became swamped with mobs brawling over discounted items, Bloomberg reported.

Clips circulating on Weibo and other Chinese social media show customers crammed in aisles, playing tug-of-war with raw poultry and elbowing other shoppers out of the way.

“There’s no other word to describe it but crazy,” marveled one Weibo poster.
