Losses 'in the millions'
Luxury retailer Hermes and three-day-old Wendy's among those hit
By Ng Kai Ling & Lim Wei Chean
FROM handbags costing thousands of dollars to $10 toiletries, a wide range of wares was destroyed in a flash by the flood that hit Orchard Road yesterday.
Add to that the cost of furnishings and equipment, and retailers say they are looking at millions of dollars in losses.
Among the worst-hit stores were luxury goods retailer Hermes, apparel house Massimo Dutti and three-day-old fast-food restaurant Wendy's, all at Liat Towers.
But stores at Lucky Plaza - including a Watsons outlet and a myriad of shops stocking everything from mobile phones to computer peripherals - also suffered heavy losses.
Retailers there said it was the worst instance of flooding they had seen in years, adding that they should know - the basement of the building floods every year, they said.
Some said they had lost between $8,000 and $10,000 worth of goods.
AT&T: iPhone 4 Pre-Orders 10 TIMES Higher Than First Day Last Year
WOW. AT&T says Apple iPhone 4 pre-orders were 10 times higher than the first day of iPhone 3GS pre-orders last year. And Apple just announced that it took 600,000 iPhone 4 pre-orders yesterday.
That explains why AT&T's and Apple's systems were so hosed -- and why Apple and AT&T sold out, and why AT&T has suspended pre-orders. But it doesn't excuse AT&T's privacy meltdown.
This suggests our prediction of 2 million iPhone 4 units sold by June 27 is doable, if Apple can manufacture and ship them fast enough.
AT&T issued the following statement today:
iPhone 4 pre-order sales yesterday were 10-times higher than the first day of pre-ordering for the iPhone 3G S last year. Consumers are clearly excited about iPhone 4, AT&T's more affordable data plans and our early upgrade pricing.
Given this unprecedented demand and our current expectations for our iPhone 4 inventory levels when the device is available June 24, we're suspending pre-ordering today in order to fulfill the orders we've already received.
The availability of additional inventory will determine if we can resume taking pre-orders.
In addition to unprecedented pre-order sales, yesterday there were more than 13 million visits to AT&T's website where customers can check to see if they are eligible to upgrade to a new phone; that number is about 3-times higher than the previous record for eligibility upgrade checks in one day.
We are working hard to bring iPhone 4 to as many of our customers as soon as possible.
