    I guess hot dogs and coffees weren't able to cover rental fees.

    Get used to it... Wait till restaurants go the same way, thanks to today's 'youth' as they order UBER eats or just patron take away fast food joints.. The future for bricks and mortar biz, really is growing more and more synthetic and sterile, as it approaches its eventual repundance.

    A shame really..

    Sooner or later governments will change tax to make it fairer. The likes of Amazon pay low land rates on their super fulfillment centres probably along with other perks such as free access roads.

    I thought they already had a round or two of sales - my son bought something or the other from one of those sales a couple of weeks ago.

    I suspect what is left is dead stock.

    probably still have hundreds of vinyl records in stock, seems like that 2 weeks ago, a lot of it sold apart from vinyl records which amazing occupies around 5th of causeway stock and they don't seem to be selling that much, probably due niche market and lack of space in HK

    ROFLMAO. If only today's young people could be as well behaved, creative, cultured, diligent, hardworking, consuming, virile, valiant and of course humble as our dear Skyhook was in his youth....
